Has anyone ever tried one of these in flintlock? I have never owned a flintlock and thought I might be old enough to try one. $449.99 plus tax at Cabela's. What u'all think ? Give me the good, bad and the ugly.

ive had one for about 2 years now. Love it. Had to massage the frizzen spring a bit to weak it as it was very stiff from the factory, but after that she sparks like crazy. 1/2x5/8" french amber flints are the ticket.

Thanks FG if I get this rifle I am sure I will have lots more questions. Where do you get those flints?

Jonathan did you know that many of the French Amber flints advertised today came from old warehouses in Canada. Some dating to the F&I War. An article I read in Muzzle Blasts a few years ago said there were tons of the flint stored there from sailing ships, used as ballast back in the day. Some one thinking outside of the box saw value in what most saw as rock chips.
