I have wanted a flintlock rifle for years!!! 30 plus years ago I built a .50 Hawken Replica from a kit by TC. It is pretty cool but it is like a percussion mountain rifle… and I wanted a flintlock.
I have looked at kits but the only affordable ones were 2 piece stocks and I wanted the traditional one piece in the KY/PA style. I stumbled onto one on an auction site that was at a dealers in TX so I contacted them and discussed the weapon and it’s condition. The price was good and I negotiated free shipping. On August 25th, we closed the deal and the rifle arrived here August 31st!
Anxiously opening the box, I was enthused with the condition, it was exactly as described and looks like it has never been fired… Time to pick up some black powder and head to the range!
