Glad you like the side locks. I shoot many matches each year in a number of SW States. I shoot Flintlock only. This is one of four Flinters that I travel with. This is a custom .54 Flinter with a 44" Rice Radius cut rifleing and a Chambers lock. It is an East Tenn. Style made by Steve Zihn.

Well years ago I paid $1,800 for that rifle and waited a year. This would most likely cost much more and the wait is now 3 years from craftsman. These are made for 100 yd. and 200 yds. match shooting. These are not wall hangers.
There are some less expensive flintlocks imported from India that would make wall hangers.

Ha ha funny story on the equation u use to figure the load of powder u start with lol. I got a cva inline a few years back and had no clue what a magnum barrel was. Any way I started out with what u use in my traditions which is 70 gr of powder and I was shooting powder belts which are dang expensive. Anyway got it on the paper and it looked more like a shot gun pettern. To make a long story short I adjusted the scope a half dozen times broke it down and cleaned it a half dozen more and shot about three cards of those dang power belts before I broke out the book on the gun and seen i needed to start with 110 grs lol finally got great groups with 130 grs. Moral of the story no matter how much you know always read the directions.

Barney- you have a very good point there.

Q. Why does it take 500,000 sperm to fertilize one egg?

A. Being male, they will not ask for directions.
