Traditions PA pellet

Any opinions on the PA Pellet Accelerator flintlock? I currently have a older lymans great plains that I would like to stop using and keep in good condition. The removable breech plug is a selling point!

Re: Traditions PA pellet

In my opinion, Lyman maks the best production flintlock available today. If you want a shorter, lighter gun than what you currently have, get yourself a Lyman Deerstalker and be done with it.

Re: Traditions PA pellet

the pa pellet is fine.i never had any issues with mine.some guys say they had trouble with flashhole not aligning with flashpan because of the barrel and stock moving.so far I have not seen that with mine.if you need to stay on a limited budget get the pa pellet, if you can afford more than go with the lymans.the accuracy of the pa pellet is pretty darn good , I stay old fashin and use patched roundballs, so far so good.

Re: Traditions PA pellet

I think this is the third year I've been using my Traditions Pellet rifle. I shoot regular black powder and PRB's out of my rifle with no issues. I have no complaints.

Re: Traditions PA pellet

The trade rifle is my other option and the price difference was small.. I do love my lyman.. Honestly the only reason i was leaning towards the pa pellet was the removable breech plug

Re: Traditions PA pellet

I have an older pa pellet rifle that came with the junky plastic sights. It's an OK flintlock for the money. The frizzen on mine was to soft for consistent spark, so I had that, the sights, and the touchhole liner replaced recently, and ignition is great now. The gun was always very accurate with round balls or 295gr powerbelts. The removable breech plug, and stainless/synthetic construction does make cleaning a breeze.

It seems like the newer models of the pa pellet with the accelerator breech plug and the metal sights are a better made rifle than the older models, and have better locks and frizzens, and don't have the ignition problems that some of the earlier guns had.

But, Lyman flintlocks are better made guns than the Traditions, and the Lyman Deerstalker and Trade rifle are better guns than the pa pellet, period.

If it was me I'd go with a Deerstalker or Trade rifle.
