Thought it might be interesting to see what rifles are being used. A picture is always worth a thousand words. Since my only dependable flintlock is still in pieces, I'm using one of my Half stock .50 cal. It's my CVA Mountain rifle.

I'm between a rock and a hard place on guns.

Do I want to shoot flintlock or do I want to have a better target with a percussion gun?  Really like the J&S Hawken that FrontierGander worked over (a real pleasure to shoot) ..... ???

Notice - No tacks or fancy work on either one, they don't need that extra fancy stuff to shoot good.    lol!  


stuff - stuff - stuff .....  scratch

I use an Early Lancaster .54 custom I built, I've used my son's >%) cal Traditions Hawken on two occasions for a different sites postal match, and I've used my CVA .45 cal Colonial pistol. Whatever moves me at the time. The E L .54 is my main rifle.

I mostly use my .62 cal Fusil de Chasse Smoothbore flint. Or, I take out my .54 Hawken percussion.
