    Found a nice little jewel at the local gun show yesterday. Lefthand .50 Cal flintlock from Dixie Gunworks.

    Very nice, except the picture got reversed and the lock is on the wrong side.

    I actually got it for $250.
    The lock is rubbing on the wood a little and won't stay in the half-cock, and there is some pitting on the frizzen. Both easy fixes. The bore was filthy from sitting around for a long time, but no rust.
