i don't know. if you look at the gun for sale sites, gun broker, guns america, ect., they really just aren't out there for sale. alot of cap guns, but not the flints. i think they are still popular all over the U.S., especially for entry level folks looking to get started in the whole blackpowder thing. then later on they move up to a custom gun. just a thought.good ole boy said:True,but if they ever allow inlines in our sacred season then I betcha the value will drop.
