Are thinking custom? Dixons would be a good place to checkout. Some very nice rifles hanging from the ceiling. Usually start around 1k on up.

How much do you really like muzzy hunting?If you REALLY enjoy it step up to a custom.Poor Boys and Barn guns about $1,000- 1,500.Great guns with out the fancy trimmings.
Caliber.Either 45,50,54,or 58.Can go bigger.All kill deer.I have killed deer with them all and 45 is my favorite.
Make a road trip to Dixons and try them all there and see what you like.

Cabela`s has a Pederdsoli Kentucky Flintlock , that usually goes on Sale a couple times a Year. It is rated pretty high.

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.

Ignition, ignition, ignition....lock, lock, lock.

Keep it simple and get a good lock for reliable ignition. Just sayin' FT
