Hello ,
I just found this forum I am no where near new to muzzle loaders but had not shot in a while.
I have a T/c patriot pistol I bought new :mrgreen: but that is for another time
I have
CVA trapper 12 ga shotgun
CVA hawkens 54 cal 16 barrel (Things like that happen when a bored hillbilly has access to a lath)
T/C patriot 45 cal
the above guns where bought new in the 70's-80's
Pietta 51 navy revolver
A gift from about 10 years ago just getting around to shooting it
Lyman trade rifle 50 cal
I was in a local shop and saw an old lyman trade rifle kit gun and the front sight was backwards but the gun just had the "feel " I liked I threw a bid on it and got it for little of nothing. A trip to the range confirmed my gut feeling it is a shooter
T/C renegade 56 smooth bore
I have hunt for one of these since the late 80's I never able to find one in good shape for what I wanted to pay . I was looking at another gun forum I like H&R single shots too looking through their classifieds some one mentioned a gunshop in Rhode Island had 2 on the shelf in the condition I wanted and at the price I liked . A internet search and a phone call and my search is over
