Thoughts on 58 build/conversion
I am thinking about having someone build me a 58 cal flintlock or retro fitting a GPR.
I am thinking I have three options.
Go to the Dixons Muzzleloader fair and see if someone will build me a plain jain flintlock
Buy a Great Plains Rifle and see if I can get someone to make me a drop in barrel.
Watch the classifieds.
Right now, I think option 2 is most appealing. Reason being, I am not looking for a work of art. I would like a great lock and great barrel and double set trigger. I don't want to spend a fortune for something that is going to up getting scratched and used hard. Plus, I already have a GPR in 50 cal so having an extra barrel for it would be nice. Does anyone know of anyone who makes drop in/replacements barrels that will fit a GPR? Is Bob Hoyt still doing it? Any reason this is a bad idea?
