Love them flinters! And especially left hand ones. I have a few myself, also sold a couple (&N.  I don't know why, it just seemed like a good idea at the time M__

I like that Lancaster but it should be right handed. )L$

flinters are my favorites.  Had a 54 and a 32, but like the dummie I am, I went and sold them 8 or 9 years ago, didn't have a place to shoot then, and had no idea where I would be transferred to next.  Now I have my favorite BP shop looking for a 32 or 36 for me.  Said they get them once or twice a year, so maybe if they get one I can afford I'll have another again.  To go along with the 50 I have now.

Both of those are very fine pieces. 

I picked up a TC Hawken .50 rocklock kit years ago that I hope to finish this winter.  I'm planning on doing it in dark walnut just as yours looks and finish the barrel with Plum Brown.  I have one of the globe front sights and may have to give it a try.  If I could find one of the TC aperture peep sights that would be an excellent setup for my aging eyes.  GF
