The description of this rifle on the Cabin Creek website says it has 1/4" of cast-off. Specifications are here: Pennsylvania Mountain Rifle

I strongly considered getting one of these several years ago. At that time, Brad told me their price to build one of their own kits was $1200, plus the cost of the kit, which is currently $865 in its most basic configuration. The price being asked by Mr. Efremenko, a renowned builder himself, seems like a good deal.

Best regards,

Notchy Bob

If it has cast off it probable would be un pleasant to shoot. If it is straight stocked it would be fine. I have owned several left handed flint guns over the years, having shot right handed flint for so many years a left handed gun is awkward for me.
No cast off for a left handed shooter using a right handed flintlock
I have never owned a .40 ball shooter, and the last 36 I owned was 30 years ago. How much recoil would this rifle have with hunting loads and an 8.5# weight?
Edit: I’m not really a flintlock person but it’s such a beauty I’m thinking I might need to become one...

My .40 weighs under eight pounds. With a 65 grain load it hardly has recoil.

I was reading this thread, and I am very familiar with cross dominant eye issues, and thinking “boys it’s a .40...not a .62.”
