I am curios about this. As a larger person I like weight forward guns for shooting but not for carrying.. Those that like the .58, what is your background in shooting?For weight and balance the .58 is the pick of the litter in the Colonial.
Couple years back, Kibler was at the Dixon's Fair, had STACKS of his guns in boxes, you'd just look at the end label and pick the version you wanted; stock wood, cal., etc. I bet he has a pretty fair selection just 'awaitin' at his shop! I've e-mailed him to please make a Pistol someday!Anyone know the wait times for a Kibbler or Chambers kit?
I’ve been out of the rendezvous scene for 15 years now. Prior, I had no issues shooting my .40 poor boy at 50-100 yards. Since then, muzzleloading is just another version of hunting to me, so I pulled it out a couple times a year and that was it. Not practicing held my shots to under 50 yds.I am curios about this.

I have the .50 on my bench and will be doing a .54 for a friend that is ordered.
i have a target shooter background but was mostly shotgun and handgun. I do shoot long distance but that gun is carried from the truck to the bench or ground.
I’m not quite done with the .50 but all the parts except sights are on. It weighs 8 lbs 9.5 oz. It balances at the rear of the brass entry pipe.This pic did not yet have the end cap.
