Been looking at the .36 cal flint lock rifles for a good while now. Never had or shot a flint lock before. Bet their a lot of fun.

This is the first 32 I had. I bought it used from a friend and converted it to flint. I sold it a few years ago, sorry Delbert. :'(

That rifle was a great shootin' gun! A Dixie Mountain rifle. Only reason I sold it was I was trying to get all lefty flinters.

Instead of spending $125.00 for a lock, I just bought the flint lock plate, hammer and frizzen/spring, used the internals from the percussion lock. Cost was $45.00

Well since someone brought up some measly old pellet guns.
If you're getting in the game get in it with both feet and go for it.

I have this rifle. because of the shrouded barrel it is whisper quiet don't hear the report.
Bolt action, ten shot rotary clip magazine.

I had to get special mounts to mount my scope on it, because of the extra large objective end on my mildot scope with  r/g lighted reticles. and yes  very accurate. But at $479  it better be.

DD4, is that a pre-charged pellet gun? I always thought one would be nice to have, but the price always scared me away. Is that scope rated for air gun use, or doesn't this rifle require one of those? Nice rifle, by the way.

The only thing I don't like about these pellet rifles is the weight. mazo a few of the flint locks I've been looking into say the frizzen need to be harden. What the heck do you have to do to harden one if it needs it? That right there has caused me to walk away from them or not order one.
