I did Muley but this one came along and I have wanted a GRRW for a while so I decided to wait on this flinter anyway. I do have one flint I really liked the one here I asked about because of it being a Hawken. I was torn with my decision and decided to get the GRRW. Al
You'll probably discover you will have to take the front sight down a good bit! I've got the one I just purchased down to .141" and it's about 5" high at 50 yards using a six o/clock hold! That's using 100 grs. KIK 2F powder! The barrel on this rifle is smooth as glass!! cheers

When you get her sighted in I hope you'll share your targets with us.  Love to see how she performs at the range.


I will for sure Joe. It will shoot better that I can. Suppose to be here tomorrow. Al
