Re: Lancaster vs Lebanon Style Flintlock
Berks guns evolved a fair amount...look at the Schreit, then look at something like RCA 27. The Schreit rifle has a similar architecture to a Lancaster, somewhat, where the later Berks rifles are quite distinct in their stock architecture. Lebanon rifles, like a Bonewitz to my inexperienced eye, seems more Lancaster-like than Berks-like.
If the rifle's fitted properly to you, you should be good to go with the style that piques your interest, I'd think. If you've picked your builder, talk to them. They'll advise you.
