Am I crazy??

So..no luck finding a double trigger RMC Accusporter yet...

Found a 50cal green mountain Hawken barrel for $220...1:28 twist..

Already have a L&R lock...

I'd need a stock, furniture, and triggers..

So...$500 give or take I can basically build a rifle..L&R lock..Davis deer slayer trigger..either factory or after market stock..furniture.. Maybe $500 give or take for a new rifle..

Traditional? Not at all...

A deer slayer? I'd say absolutely...

Am I crazy? Lol.

Don't know why...I love my Hawken..I've piled up many deer with it...really don't wanna spend the money on the custom I want yet...I really need to focus on a house...

But I do want another flinter...I only have one..if it breaks down I'm out of luck...and the girlfriend wants to hunt..so having a 2nd rifle will be nice...

Re: Am I crazy??

Yep,you are crazy. Crazy in love with this great sport of rocklock front stuffin. I,d say go for it.Just think how cool it will be goin out with a rifle you put together at your own liking.I would just watch that the costs don,t get out of control.

Re: Am I crazy??

I saw the stock...not a bad way to go and furniture is there...might do that.

I wouldn't go overboard on the price...I get any higher than $600 and I am real close to a semi custom like a TVM or something...


I know it'd be far from a traditional rifle...but very functional.. Should be a deer slayer...

Re: Am I crazy??

Done deal...stock and barrel are ordered...gotta find a tang...Davis deer slayer triggers and some steel furniture.


Kinda nervous about the stock...he said stuff won't drop in but will come close lol...thank goodness my Dremel is broke...I will just take my time and go slow on it...I have no reason to rush...also have to cut it to LOP and fit the butt plate to it...shouldn't be tooooo tough?

Went with grade 3 curly maple...I'd like to do a real hand rubbed finish...


Probably a good way to cut my teeth a little bit before I get into something requiring more skill...


And I do believe it'll make a dandy deer killer...

Re: Am I crazy??

Since you are going with a stock that needs final fiting and finishing, I suggest you get a book by Chuck Dixon about building muzzleloaders. it is written a bit like a comic book with very good illustrations about tools and products to use and how to use them. It is well worth the $25.00 or so that it costs on ebay "The Art of Building the Pennsylvania Long Rifle"

Re: Am I crazy??

Thank! I will grab it! I'm sure it'll be useful... Especially knowing that it will probably be the first of many rifles I build...

You really should try to get to Lewisburg for the show next month. I think you'd find it well worth the travel.

Re: Am I crazy??

Personally I'm not a fan of double triggers. My opinion they are not needed but to each their own. Your wood will be nice just take your time and don't rush it
