    Someone needs to 100 percent clarify what MLF considers an
    INLINE. Your description is vague.
    Check the NMLRA OR MBPS classifications.

    The forum considers any gun that is based on modern firearms made after 1865 and fired by a enclosed, spring loaded striker as an "In-Line" firearm.

    These guns did not exist in any great number in 1995 and I recall at the National NRA convention a lot of whoop-t-do was being made about the introduction of this style of muzzleloader.
    There were several of them on display there.

    These rifles were obvious attempts to provide firearms that looked and shot like modern cartridge rifles and were meant to appeal to modern shooters who like things like telescopic sights and long range bullets. I'm sure you know the type of gun I am talking about.

    A similar knock-off is the H&R topper style break open breech rifle which slightly redesigned the firing pin and replaced the barrel with a muzzleloading barrel.
    Although there were guns made prior to 1865 with break open breeches and exposed hammer box locks, I consider these H&R style rifles to also be "In-Line" firearms.

    Hopefully, this will help you figure out what a "In-Line" gun is and you won't be offering any for sale here on the MLF.
