Lyman 50 Cal Deer Stalker Flintlock Pro and Con?

Heared so many good things about this flintlock...What do you think about it?

It comes in LH too...Points nice....real nice fiberoptic sights on it now. One could pup a pepsight on it too since the new ones are already tapped for it if you desired...

Got mine 3 years ago and love it! The sights were my only complaint, but through practice- I just got used to using them. Apparently Lyman has addressed this problem though. I have the left-handed model.
Uncle Buck- I don't think you can go wrong with this choice

Ability can take you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there.

Uncle Buck, Dixon's Muzzleloader Shop is an authorized dealer for Lyman, and I've handled several of their lefty models. They're definitely "top shelf" weapons, and one of these days.......!

Re: Lyman 50 Cal Deer Stalker Flintlock Pro and Con?

Nice short gun thats easy to carry.Good accuracy.Lifetime warranty covered by Dixons.Good strong steel in that barrel.Some guys had trouble breaking that folding rear sight.I never did.I had 3 of them in years past but I'm a taller/bigger guy and could never get used to the ballance of a shorter gun.I have 2 Great Plains now.(50&54)I also have a early Plains that was made in a 45.Their Trades rifle is inbetween size.If your shooting RB's the Great Plains can out shoot with the 1:66/1:60 twist.I think the "A" series is 1:66 and pre "A" is 1:60.I could have that switched but but are excellent.
Both Trades and Deerstalkers are 1:48.
They used to make a Deerstalker Carbine that was even shorter yet.

The answers to all of life's questions are found in the Bible!

Re: Lyman 50 Cal Deer Stalker Flintlock Pro and Con?

I have had one for a couple of years. I shoot prb's with it and can hold a 2in group with it at 50yds. I use a .490 ball 80gr of 2f goex and blue pillow ticking lubed with borebutter. It is a nice gun and worth the money, I kinda wish it had a double trigger, I am not a big fan of the trigger pull. Other than that it is a very nice flinter.

Friends don't let friends buy inlines

Re: Lyman 50 Cal Deer Stalker Flintlock Pro and Con?

What I like about this gun is the single trigger. You can tell just how a gun fits you if your going to like it. I have had other L H flintlocks and they just seemed not to feel good...Also they have double triggers too...The fiberoptic type sight should work great in dark forest or even over snow...
