I like the looks of those Mowrey’s. Always wanted one of those.
It does have a good drop. I'm somewhat used to it beings I shoot a lot of old double shotguns. As far a price, I know what you mean as I bought my first Charleville musket for $150 the year I graduated from High School and that was 1975.I always wanted one and lusted for one some time.
Then I finally decided to get one and then I find it has way too much drop on the stock for me.
They look nice and have nice wood, just won't work for me.
In 1974 they were on sale at Dixie for $75.00, the brass one.
Thanks, I will make note of that. I'm hoping to be able to go out sometime this weekend and give it a try. I'll start with 50 grains FFFGWith that long-tailed butt plate, you may find it more comfortable to fire if held across your chest & resting on your bicep or the joint, rather than shouldered as most. My SMR is much more comfortable, & stable, shot that way.I just learned this quirk from this group; it worked, so I pass it on.
I had a short barreled 58. It was brutal to shoot and even though accurate, was not a great idea for a ten shot target range. Nice for string shoots though.
