It arrived Thursday.I've been so busy I havent had time to post.

It is everything the seller claimed,never fired,the bore is in new condition.It is like it just came out of the box.
It came with allot of goodies also.All I need is powder.
NOT A MARK ON IT.
Nice stock also

Sax, go with 3f Goex,Swiss, Grafs,for the main charge and t hen buy a can of 4f for the priming charge. A can of 4f for me has lasted me darn near 3 years and you know how i like to shoot Laughing Laughing

.018 Pillow ticking is also a good patch material to have on hand. It was the most accurate and held up the best in my GPR. If you are shooting balls.

I forget, but is it a .50 or .54?

forgot to add that you Can use 3f for priming the pan but i never used it so i can not tell you if there is a different between ignition with 3f VS 4f in the pan.

Nice rifle, but everything is on the wrong side, he-he-he!!!

If you have not fire a FL, you should be in for a big surpirse. I just bought a Lyman GPR in .50 cal. FL. I was lucky and didn't have any problem with the usual FL flash flinch. It was as if I had fired one of these beauties for my whole life.

I ended up shooting FFFg for all applications, both pan and barrel. It took awhile getting the pan powder right though.

Good luck with the new piece and how about a range report as soon as possible. cheers
