Let's see your hunting flinter.............

Maybe this has been done & I didn't see it. If it has, then my dumb.

But there's SUCH a wide variety of factory & custom rifles that guys are toting in search of deer. Let's see them and give a description of what the gun is and your hunting load.

Re: Let's see your hunting flinter.............

I'll go first, then.......

Mine's a late 70's or early 80's CVA Mountain Rifle .50 cal. with German silver furniture. It seems to love the Hornady PA Conical over 80 grains of FFg. The lock is really partial to the T/C cut agate flints. For a factory gun, this is the most finely balanced gun I own of ANY variety.

50 cal.

Is your position a short term gain - or a long term loss? Separate the issues.

Re: Let's see your hunting flinter.............

Posted elsewhere with a few more pics of it, but this is my rifle, recently completed for me by Allen Martin. It is a 62-caliber, and I'm shooting 120gr 2F with a 0.600 ball and pillowticking patches.

It shoots as good as it looks!

Hope to have a pic of it with a critter soon.

50cal TC Hawken...refinished the stock a few times...antiqued the brass last winter...everything turned out awesome except the trigger guard..it wouldn't take at all...inletted the stock so the lock sits flush...sent the lock to TC to have it updated to the new style..ground the pan so the frizzen sits flush...polished the pan..upgraded the touchhole liner..put on fiber optic sights...composite ramrod..after I had the lock updated it sparks best with white German Agate flints..

Shooting 245gr Buffalo Ball-ets over 70gr of 3fg..also shoots patched round balls over 90gr of 3fg without touching the sights..

One of these days I'm gunna get a new flintlock...but we're a deadly combo...I still don't like the lock..

Re: Let's see your hunting flinter.............

That's an awesome pic right there, mauser!

I had a young 6pt at 20 yards, broadside, 15 min into the season. I used my buck tag in rifle season, lol. A buck with the flintlock is a trophy and a half!

TPlank, where was the elk taken? And nice rifle!

Best pic I have

It is a custom gun with a Douglas barrel, and an older TC lock......
