I had a .45 long rifle model that I shot a good bit in-between rifles.
the rifling was very shallow (gun was from the 1990's) light to moderate powder for target loads were accurate.
hunting loads were not accurate, that was fixed with cornmeal on top of the powder under patched roundball
double set triggers were ok to good but not great
the lock was the weak spot in this rifle, mainspring was ok, the pan was tiny and the frizzen was bad, shoeing the frizzen fixed that problem
I think L&R offers drop in locks on some models, that would be the way to go
the rifle held nice for offhand shooting
