I think they quit importing them and another company is importing them now under a different name.

Last I heard, and this could be nothing more than rumor, Lyman had cancelled contracts with Pedersoli and will be returning to Investarms for production of Lyman rifles. Only time will tell if this is true.

Did you check out Muzzleloaders.com? They had the Gemmer 54 flint a few days ago.
According to the guy I talked to at Lyman a few months ago, they have gotten out of the muzzleloader business.
I called them a week ago and was told the same thing. “Dropped the gun business earlier this year”. That was that.

I also read where they were out of the business. Some time back Dixon's was an authorized repair facility for Lymans, (where I bought my LH .54 Perc. GPR) and they had a rack with many stocks in the rear of the shop, so there must have been replacements due to cracks or whatever.

When those new-fangled Pedersoli GPR's came out, Mike Nesbitt did a comparison review in Muzzleloader magazine, if my memory serves.

I wonder if this will include Lyman round ball molds as well. I haven't seen new ones listed for sale in a LONG time.
It seems this is affecting a lot of areas. I’ve been trying for 3 years to get a Lyman 57 sight for my GPR.
