    Afternoon, I live in California, the Gun/pawn shops in my area very seldom have a new or used rifle to handle so I pretty much just look online. I now have 3 ML rifles, An Investarm Bridger Hawken, A CVA mountain rifle and a TC Cherokee all in 45 Cal. I really like the slim light feel of the...

It’s very similar to a rifle I passed on 2 months ago. It’s a 45cal, they want $550 for the rifle. Am I being to...

    New rifle

    Well, my new investarms 45 cal came in the other day, it’s the Bridger Hawken. Today I was able to fire it. This is my first BP rifle, I have an Uberti 1858 pistol that I have been shooting a lot, I wanted the same experience with a rifle. I must say it won’t be the last Muzzleloader rifle! The...

    New member from northern Ca

    Hi all, I’ve been reading here for the last 8 weeks or so, about the time I bought an Uberti 1858, been having so much fun with it I haven’t used any of my modern stuff since! My Investarms Hawken will be here Monday! Seems like a great group here, look forward to learning more. Sam
