Just joined the forum the other week. I've been involved with flintlocks since I finished a Dixie Gun Works kit in 1976. It was a kit that I received from my father as a Christmas present. I still have the rifle but unfortunately it has never been a consistent shooter. I am currently working on a Lancaster County rifle that I started to build in 1980. Life has a way of getting in the way of plans. I joined the forum to gather some info as I work on finishing the rifle. Hopefully, I will get it finished and sighted in before muzzle loading season gets going later in the year.
