Default Plains Rifle Arrives

So my Lyman GPR was on backorder, ETA was 3 weeks. A month anda half goes by, I give ImpactGuns a jingle to check on the status. The customer service rep looks up my order, then tell me 6-8 weeks backordered. I'm bummed. Next day I get an email with shipping info and it arrived last nite Bada bing!!

It's a plains rifle .54 cal, it sure is sweet. Now I need mother nature to back off the desert heat and blow out all this smoke from the CA fires and I can go shootin'. That was the last BP gun on my bucket list I'll post up some pics later this week..............markerdown

I had the GPR out next to my TC hawken. I really like the clean look of the GPR, but the wood grain on the TC is strikingly awesome markerdown

Congrats! Can't wait to see the range report. I always wanted a Lyman BP rifle.

Beautiful! I always liked the dark stain Lyman uses on their GPR. Now all you have to do is take it off the bed and bring it to the range!
