    I bought this rifle from the used rack at Dixon's in Kempton, PA in 2008. It is a Dixie Gunworks .50 caliber Tennessee Mountain Rifle restocked by George L. Dech of PA. He retained the original Miroku-made barrel, lock, triggers, and ramrod (which I've replaced). It also came with a spare frizzen.

    It's been a good shooter that's a bit better handling than a factory original TMR, due to the turned down barrel.

    Other than the fact that he put the lock on the wrong side ;), it looks like a very nice rifle! :thumb:

    I really like it, being a lefty too, but I’d file in a single wedding band transition where it goes from octagonal to round, if it were mine.

    Looks real fine to me. How much weight does the oct. to round save. It would fit me just fine.:D
