I have a Tenn. Mountain Rifle made by Dixie, got it as a gift about 30 years ago, 50 cal. lefty, anyone have a clue on the value, I just have a funny feeling I should not be taking it in the woods, I checked Dixie site only thing they have close is a right handed kit for 630.00

Re: Value of a "Dixie"

Dixie doesn`t have them made anymore, that kit for sale on there are it and once gone, that is it. For years they had them made by Miraku Japan. One of the best buys at the time. Is yours a flinter? As far as value goes, they are very hard to put a value on, so many factors to consider. One thing I do know, I rarely see them for sale used and I imagine Dixie sold a ton of them.

The Dixie mountain rifle was a real good quality rifle made in Japan. hey were unfortunately heavy as an anchor and many were cut down. It was also possible to convert from flint to percussion and back by buying the other lock. i have a full length righy hand model, Folks who have them seldom part with them which is why they come up so infrequently on places like Gunbroker. They had a peculiar round ball rifling. as I recall it was 5 or 6 lands and grooves, which is very wide compared to most rifling, but it shoots well. Since lefty rifles are a premium, you may be able to get something near new price for one.

Re: Value of a "Dixie"

Priceless! It was the first gun I ever built with my Dad 31 years ago and it has a proud place over my workbench. I probably have 5000 rounds through that gun. The stock is cracked at the nose, the finish is worn, the browning is faded but I will never part with it. Only change I made was I put the RPL replacement lock on.

No not looking to sell, it is a flintlock, just thinking of getting something new and putting this one away.
