« Last post by Rob DiStefano on November 28, 2021, 06:01:06 PM »
Bbl is 32" with 1:60 rifling twist, weight is exactly 9lbs unloaded.  This is a much modified  kit build that includes an L&R RPL-05 lock and an L&R T5 DST trigger assembly.  LMF alcohol walnut and nut brown stain under six coats of Tru-Oil.  The patent breech plug and touch hole liner are both Nikal anti-seize greased, the lock time is tuned for speed.  The touch hole liner has been drilled to .060" diameter.  The bore has been polished Lee Shaver style with 150 cycles of a jag patched with 0000 steel wool over cotton and lubricated with Ballistol.  The rifle is complete, includes hickory ramrod w/brass jag, adjustable rear sight, loaded ball board.  Ships in original boxes.  Ready for sighting in, just add powder.  For the dollar conscious, the kit was $627/shipped from muzzle-loaders.com ... the flint lock was $200/shipped and the DST was $65/shipped, both direct from L&R.

SOLD - $600 shipped in the USA

He and I were sitting in an ambush spot I had cut out years ago. Spot is only a quarter mile from where I shot my buck two days previously. Just at dark, he said "I see a buck scraping, here he comes." There was eight inches of snow where we hunt so the buck stood out pretty good even in the darkness. When the buck turned broadside he shot but the gun just clicked causing the buck to stop and stare at us sitting forty yds away (have been having trouble with the caps on the stock nipple) I whispered "pull hammer back and shoot again." He did and the rifle fired dropping the buck.
About wore out the batteries in the headlamps getting him out to the pick-up but a memory neither of us will forget. Not his first buck, (he's shot one every year since he was 10, plus a bull moose), but his first BP buck. He was shooting a Lyman Deerstalker 50cal with 75gr powder pushing a 335gr conical.   [ Invalid Attachment ]
