S&W finally deleted the flintlocks from the T/C line!!! It is quite the shame that they abandoned the roots of the company!! I bet Mr. Warren Center is turning over in his grave!!! The gutting of T/C is nearly complete!!
PA is the only state with a specific flintlock deer season. Since a good flintlock rifle lasts a lifetime or two, there's very little demand for these rifles. And most new flint hunters in PA are buying cheaper imported rifles.
I sold my Firestorm over the summer and only had minimal interest and ended up letting it go at a very low price. Months later my phone and e-mail went crazy with inquiries...Then I found out that they were no longer making flint guns.
That,s why I,m upset too DC.Guys like us that supported them and gave em our hard earned money and got them to where they are today.They don,t care,so I don,t care for them either.The bad thing though is that we have to also boycott S&W who is behind all of this.I,d shore luv to hear from some TC,s employeees.I betcha they are highly upset as well as I reckon they will have layoffs.When Marlin was goin thru their buyout then shut down of their plant their employees would always get on a Marlin forum and talk about how they got screwed.They still do post about it as a matter of fact.
There a few Ex-T/C employees that started LHR Sporting Arms. I like what I see so far they only have one inline out so far BUT am hopeful they will return to their roots and make a flintlock or two.
I am not only done with T/C but S&W also!!!
