I've looked on a bunch of places for builders and all I've seen are flintlocks. I don't want a flintlock. Anyone know of a builder that makes percussion guns and is available to call or email? I would like something beside factory guns.

Tennessee Valley Muzzleloaders offer several of their rifles in percussion. Should be worth a look.

Sitting fox muzzle loader, please note I’m not endorsing them as I’ve never done business with them and have heard good and bad things about them. They do offer gun kits, unfinished and finished guns. And have some pemade in hand now.
Track of the wolf sells guns and offers percussion guns. They have them on consignment or they got them in trade.

Call tip curtis. He probably makes 80% flinters, but did see percussion rifles at friendship.

May have what you are looking for built awaiting a buyer..

Sure, every "builder" you saw that makes flintlocks,, will build you a percussion model.
Honest. You just gotta ask.
They just advertise the flint's more because they demonstrate a bit higher skill level.

Many of the flint lock style guns are converted style guns. This style would continue to be used up through the 1930s in Appalachian guns. Often the guns designed as percussion are rarer on custom sights. And are often Hawkins or British hunting rifles. So custom sites don’t show them as much, but oft are happy to build them.

Track of the Wolf website has a dedicated section to percussion rifles for sale by a variety of custom builders, or as mentioned above most custom builders will gladly build whatever type percussion rifle you want from scratch or one of the kits available, many kits are also listed at TOTW. I have a Bridger Hawken built by Mr. John Bergmann that I ordered there. Also mentioned above, TVM has the Tennessee and S.Mtn. rifles available in percussion and probably a few others. You can probably have someone build one of Mr. Kiblers fine kit guns for you with a percussion lock. Many options out there, good luck.
