I was saving this one for myself, but I just got released from six days in the hospital which has canceled my 2020 muzzle loading hunting season. I will build many more before next season. The below custom built mule ear rifle is for sale with possible partial trades included. I built the gun and completed it in July of this year. It has been sighted in and shot approx. 50 times. It is very accurate with a .445 round ball and .016 lubed patch. The price is $1,575 which includes full insurance coverage and shipping in a custom wood crate - to normal postal areas. I accept USPS Money Orders or I can take credit/debit cards with the added 3% cost of using a card.

For partial sale/trade, I am in need of some Thompson Center Hawken, Renegade, Cougar, Seneca or Cherokee rifles in either flint or percussion. They must be in good shape, have all the correct parts and not have any rust or pitting in the barrel. No straight trades will be considered and they must be TC. I will be modifying them and can not afford to tie up much money on the front end.

Bringing it back for another look. Keep in mind that I will take one or more of the listed TC's as partial trade. I have some parts to significantly modify them and need some donor TC's. Thanks for looking.
