If u r gonna bother with TVM which I can't recommend anymore, look at Pedersoli Frontier rifles instead. You'll be better off and there are assorted quality levels that are stunning...

http://www.davide-pedersoli.com/tipologia-prodotti.asp/l_en/idt_36/rifles-frontier.html

These are copies of the original Hatfield rifles. Sold now by Cabela's as their Blue Ridge Longrifle as well. These are probably what YOU think of as a Minuteman's gun.

Here's my actual Hatfield and a basic Pedersoli version of mine when they took it over, as well as my Early Virginia TVM. .50 cal all.

I don't know what ya meant by that...but to me, a "minuteman's rifle" is just a common "Pennsylvania/Lancaster" rifle or a Virginia rifle.

I realize mant of them had Brown Bess pattern muskets, but I prefer the romanticized version of the companies of skirmishing farmers with their fowlers and hunting rifles.

I just like em nice and pretty...probably moreso than they actually were.

We're on the same page -- that's y I'd say to look at those amped-up Pedersolis. Note that they are shooters. U could probably find a pretty but broken flint gun somewhere cheap too if you are very patient and look real hard...

Needed to resurrect my thread, so I will do it this way; is there someone on here that lives in the Panhandle of Florida that can tell me or give me a website to a store in said area where I can go and purchase my "Brown Bess"? I now have the time to start the project and I really hate to buy stuff on line.

Thanks!

I am going to have to remember to check this site when I get home. Stupid government internet has the site blocked. It must have pictures of naked guns on it or something.
