    Wonderful collection! I only have two. One is a old CVA St. Louis Hawken and the other is a Pietta 1858 Remington revolver.

    Made this .54 Hawken from Track of The Wolf parts. It will break clay pigeons ( and deer ) at 100 yards. Made the horn and bag also.

    Is that revolver on the bottom a baby dragoon? I was recently given one exactly like that by a neighbor, but I haven't shot it yet. Is it .31 or .36 caliber?

    I know it's not traditional but I wanted to post it up. SnakeDoctor gifted me this Knight LK93 back in March of 2010 at the Southeastern meet. The scope was a gift from a friend and I paid $5.99 for the mounts from a gun store going out of business. So here is my six and half dollar tack driver. 3 shot groups @ 100 yards look like cloverleafs more times than not.

    You guys are killing me!!!!
    I found a sweet little Traditions 50 cal. percussion lock beauty on a used rack at a local gun store last week for $169.00. I didn't have the money and was not in a position to raise it anytime soon so I had to pass it up...:(
    I've never had a blackpowder rifle and I think that the percussion lock would be a little easier learning curve than a flinter. I just WANT ONE SOOOO BADDDD!!!
    This gun had a "blondish" colored stock and only weighed about 6 lbs. It probably kicks like a mule too...but it couldn't be any worse than my single shot 20 gauge with a slug...ouch!

    Nice flinter Rob, too bad its made backwards. It must be really frustrating to shoot with the lock on the wrong side. :4:

    And nice Hatfield, Trout. Love the patchbox work. And yeah, did you buy that new when they first came out? :54:

    Well my dad bought it for me when I was in the Navy as a present for passing a certain school in the Navy....I believe it was 1982, that is just how they came then. I sure wish that company was around still, would love a .50 in the same style. The .32 works well though and I have taken a deer with it a few times, just used a minie ball rather than a round ball. I think dad paid something like $375 for it then and now on GB and AA they go for about $3000 when and if you can find em.

    Had one of my friends make a horn and bag and when I got outta the Navy I was into the Mountain Man thing for a bit, very good time in my life doing that stint.

    I still have the rifle, horn and bag and they grace my mantle here at the cabin in PA.

    malamute it's not bad to shoot from either side i have a righty flint too ( i'll get a pic tomorow) had to get something for when i was war of 1812 reenacting.

    dances w/a trout there are lots of places to get a .50 along the same style. the prices for good flinters have gone up lately but you can do a lot better than 3000 for one

    Two Ontario Knife Co. Old Hickories. Closest thing I've got to Green River Knives. The sheaths were hand made by our own Kepis. I bought these sheaths and a hand axe sheath from him in 2007 or 2008 and, if I'm not mistaken, they were some of the very first ones he sold. I've been looking for the right knives to put in them ever since. When I get these Old Hickories rescaled in black walnut they should do just fine

    my "war of 1812" rifle. its a cabela's blue ridge .50 actually its made by pedorsoli i think they call it a frontier if they sell it. the sights are about a
    3/4" to tall the way it comes but u filem down its a fine shooten flinter. the stock is a little odd shaped for me but you can make it work

    This rifle started out as a LH flint Dixie Gun Works Tenn. Mountain Rifle. A previous owner took it to G.L. Dech who restocked it as a Pennsylvania rifle. He also turned the barrel half-round, which greatly improved the balance compared to a stock TMR, in my opinion.

    I found it at Dixon's a few years ago and bought it as my 40th birthday gift to myself. :)

    No muzzleloaders(yet) but here's my two bp cartridge guns.


    Uberti '73, I really wanted it in 44-40 for period correctness sake, but this 44sp model was "used" and a damn good deal. Had it for the longest time but haven't shot it. It's sad to say but because it's not a period correct caliber, I haven't really invested much time with it. Incredibly stupid I know.

    Uberti 51 RM conversion. Of all my guns this ones my favorite.

    While not an actual firearm it's a relic from the era. (And I couldn't find the "Old crap porn" thread. :D)

    Old leather (badger and moose mostly) home grown hunting bag.

    [​IMG]
    Disposition and nice inside of lid.

    I dug it out because I'm making a copy of it for use, thought I'd share since I really love this old bag and can remember grandpappy using it a couple of times. It was older than dirt even then.

    I am looking at a Left Handed Baker Rifle as well. The .62 caliber ball would pack one h@ll of a punch, and what a fun gun it would be to shoot. I'm a little wary of buying the parts to build my self though...

    The rifle was made by John Bergmann of Tennessee.
    He is a very reasonable person to deal with.
    He can make a working mans rifle at a fair price OR what ever you can imagine in terms of engraving and inlays.

    i got my left hand flinter used for a good price. i grew upshooting from both sides, i have my lefty from the right and i've shot my righty flint from the left. it really isnt that bad, the only thing is you have reach over to the other side to use the hammer. if your buying a new one its deffanently worth getting what you will be comfortable with, but you can get by with a wrong handed gun just fine.

    Got around to taken some photos of my 54 cal. I traded Ol'Man Rick from Rapid City back in 94 while I lived there, for her, he built it from kit, and I did the old style rust treatment to the barrel.
    She shoots a clover leaf at 50yds but if you hit a 4'x8' sheet of ply-wood at 100yds your lucky. I used 100grs of BP and after 5 shots your feeling it.

    My muzzleloading tastes are very ecclectic for a lack of a better term.

    TC Contender with a custom 50 caliber muzzleloading barrel. So far two Florida hogs taken.

    Muzzleloader Eye Candy, post them up

    Here is a pic of all of my front stuffers. Top to bottom, custom built 50 cal Hawken Flint lock, 32 cal Traditions Crockett, 50 cal TC Hawken cap lock, and lastly a CVA 50 cal Kentucky pistol.

    Out of all of them the 32 is my favorite to shoot. If I do what I am suppose to it will cut bullet holes all day long at 30 yards. My next favorite is the Flinter, It shoots good and is by far the least expensive to shoot. It is not picky about the flints either. As long as I wipe the soot off of it every half dozen shots, it will continue to fire until there is nothing left of the flint to spark with. I don't worry about having to rework the flint, it just keeps shooting.

    The TC Hawken I haven't had long at all. I traded a couple of arrow heads to a buddy of mine for it, at the end of February. I had to remove a stuck charge from the bore and put a nipple on it. I figured worse case I would have to order a new GM barrel for it or rebore it to a 54cal, but once I cleaned it up it shot really well at 60 yards, which made it a good piece of trading stock for a flinter when one comes along. The CVA pistol was given to me by my step father several years ago and I can count on one hand the number of times I have taken it out to shoot it. It shoots good, but I never much had a use for pistols. I have always been a rifleman myself and prefer to shoot them over handguns.

    I figure the Ky pistol makes a good companion to the TC Hawken, since both are cap lock. If I find a Ky pistol flinter I my pick it up to go with the custom Hawken. I just can't see the justification in packing a flint rifle and cap lock pistol. If I have to pack caps for the rifle then the pistol is a plus.

    Best wishes and thanks for looking,

    Joe
