Re: Looking for new flinter for 16 season
I started hunting the late flintlock season about 15 or 20 years ago, and bought a used T/C Renegade. 3 years ago I decided to get a proper longrifle, looked quite a while and finally found a .50 Lancaster, swamped barrel, that fit the bill perfectly. Barrel length is probably 38" or so. I thought it might be longer than ideal to carry in the woods, but I've found it to be a joy. I typically carry it in one hand and it balances perfectly - actually carries easier than the Renegade. Enjoy your search - definitely check out some shows, like the Lewisburg show, and others.
