Wanted Lyman 54 Cal GPR Cap & Ball Empty
PostSubject: Wanted Lyman 54 Cal GPR Cap & Ball   Wanted Lyman 54 Cal GPR Cap & Ball EmptyDecember 7th 2018, 6:44 pm

I am thinking about trying to find a used in good shape and affordable Lyman 54 Cal Cap & Ball GPR.  For My Son for Xmas. I have a Lyman 54 Cal GPR Cap & Ball already. And I was wanting to get My Son the very same gun. We buy a lot of exactly the same guns for each other. My Son has been my best hunting & shooting partener since He was 3 or 4 years old. And we hunt and shoot mostly to grather. I am now 75 years old and He is 51 years old. And the rolls of who is watching and taking care of who, have sort of reversed. And I am the permanent blocker now. And ideas on finding a used Lyman GPR, that I can afford. Thanks in advance for Your assistance.

I can't help you on your search any better than Buck has but you did pick an excellent gun to buy. Love my 50 caliber GP rifle. I bought mine from Midsouth shooters supply way back in the mid 1990's for around $250 for the factory built gun. The kit was about $220 IIRC. I thought just buy the finished gun and if I don't like it I will refinish it. Never happened. The factory did a bang up job I am proud to own.

The only change I made was to shorten and thin the front sight blade. And it shoots great groups with RB loads and decent groups with LEE REAL bullets in the 320gr weight. Good enough for deer hunting to 75 yards. It also gives good groups with LEE Improved Minnies. Just a darn good gun. The only down side is that Buttplate From Hell. Just sure to shoulder it properly.
