Default Pictures of your rifle

Tell us a little about your rifle and put a pic on if you have one. I dont have a pic yet but I hope to get one if I go shooting next week. I have a 54. Caliber Thompson Center Arms. It was my grandpas and he gave it to me.

.50 cal. Hawken by Virgil Hartley (dec'd) with Bill Large (also dec'd) barrel. 32" barrel, Hartley-made short hammer fall caplock. DST's, total weight 7 pounds w/o scope. Lyman aperture rear sight, 4X Lyman All-American scope.





I also have a .45 Hawken which is essentially identical, but has browned iron furniture instead of brass.

Mine is a 50 cal Traditions "Shenandoah."



And the action:



I've only had it for about 3 months and it has been a lot of fun to shoot. A real conversation piece at the range to boot! Not to sound hackneyed, but shooting this gun and learning about flintlocks in general, has really opened my eyes to the difficulties users of these weapons experienced.

I am hoping Cayugad will reply. From the sound of it, he has got quite a collection.

Here's a picture of a few of the traditional rifles I like to shoot the most. And some of the Green Mountian Barrels I like to switch back and fourth with. And I see my new Knight Disc rifle in there with the camo stock. The other wall has more inline rifles, and the gun cabinet has a few of the old Thompson Center rifles I have...

All of them I do shoot (other then the modern rifles.. I have not shot them in many years). And the black powder handguns. Also this picture shows some of the empty cans of black powder, swiss, pyrodex jugs (I threw away a lot of them) and Triple Se7en jugs,I shot off last year and the #11 caps.

eldequello,
I love your Hartley Hawken rifle....wishing I had one!

I planned on posting a picture of my T/C Scout, since you don't see them very often anymore, but after seeing cayugad's collection I decided to show a few more if my muzzleloaders.

Here's the .50 cal. T/C Scout. I had a .54cal Scout pistol a few years ago to go along with the rifle, but I was an idiot and sold it.....shame on me!
