Re: RMC ACCUSPORTER

Got the email as well. Not to excited about the price. When I got mine years ago I know it was not that much. But I must say it has been a great muzzleloader.

Re: RMC ACCUSPORTER

I also think they would be a better rifle with a GM 15/16" 1/70 twist .54 barrel on them. I do have a 1/28 twist Accusporter and it is outstanding with sabots and Great Plains conicals but I also have a Lyman .54 Deerstalker that I shoot a whole bunch more.

I am firmly in the .54 roundball camp vs. sabot and conical bullets.

I also feel they did the new ones wrong. Some will like them that way though. I would love a GM .54 1:66 or 1:70 roundball barrel, no false muzzle and double triggers and a nice maple or walnut stock at a decent price. $799 is a crazy high price.

Re: RMC ACCUSPORTER

Be $140 for a lock, $150 for a barrel gm, $50 stock plus $85 for inlet and rr hole. $20 for tennons, pins, trigger, bolts, $30plus for furniture, say $600 in parts, let alone labor to construct and finishes etc....I think 800 is fair...

Anybody can shoot deer on the farm ground....You earn it in the mountains.......

Re: RMC ACCUSPORTER

I can appreciate that. If I were to spend $800 I would add a few hundred more and get a TVM from Matt Avance. That's just me though.

I think they were $699 before they stopped making them.

Re: RMC ACCUSPORTER

800 bucks does seem like a lot of money but just purchasing the components adds up quick. I bought a Lyman Deerstalker a few years back for I think $439.00 and I know I couldn't buy the lock, barrel, ramrod, sling studs, sights, breech plug, vent liner, stock, machining/fitting/browning for what I had in the factory rifle. I like the rifle and when I compared the effort and expense it felt like a bargain.

I have an RMC with a 24" and 28" barrels for the same stock. It's a nice rifle and shoots very well with the 300 grain Hornady xtp's but I rarely use it anymore and will probably sell it at some point.

There is nothing like a .54 caliber soft lead round ball moving out at modest velocity to hunt deer with in my opinion. I love the sheer simplicity of it and it works as well as anything out of a flintlock. No; it doesn't have the range and power that conical and pistol bullets have but I never needed that either.
