I'm trying to understand stand why, if this is supposed to be a shorter, earlier style rifle (allegedly from the 1760's) why the caliber choices start and end smaller than the later styled "Colonial" offering.
This seems like it would be an ideal rifle to have in .58 to .62 caliber.

I'm not exactly kicking myself for having built a new .50 last year, but apart from the brass hardware, this is exactly the gun I was looking for. I really prefer the shorter barrel of this than what's on the Colonial. If it did come in .58, I'd be all over it.

What are the main differences in this and the Colonial?
Near as I can tell, the Colonial has a slightly longer barrel (maybe a slightly heavier barrel?), is available in 50, 54, 58 cal, weighs 9 lbs +/- depending on caliber.
The Woodsrunner has a shorter barrel (39.75"), available in 45, 50, 54 cal, weighs 7.5 - 8 lbs +/-

Also it seems to have a slimmer profile or at least it seems to be that way to me.
Of course I’m a arse and don’t care much for British or Yankee decorations on a weapon. I’m a SMR fan
