What about that nose cap? The ones sold around here didn't have one.

I only have the one muzzleloader and never seen any with the nose cap. Mine has the same fore end stock as yours in the picture.

When I say the same fore end I mean with the collar and screwand not the brass cap. Also when was the fire at T/C that destroyed some of their records?

I sent a letter to T/C asking about my guns. They are both very limited prodution models. Both have the capped forend and the curved but plate and octagon barrels. On the top of the barrels they are marked TEXAS SCOUT and CODY SCOUT. The Texas is 50cal. and the CODY is 54cal. I'll try to include a copy of the letter and photos of the barrel markings with this.

The photo doesn't show it but the TEXAS SCOUT shown has casehardening on the bottom,top and side bevel. The large side flats are blued.
The CODY SCOUT is full casehardened.

That looks like the one I saw at a gunshow with the half octagonal barrel. The one I saw at the shop the other day I need to look at again.

This is very interesting They had so many rifles that were not in catologs and sold through distributors like Gander Mountain I am sure I will keep seeing models I never knew were out there. This reminds me of the Express I sold to Encoreman There is no record of that rifle ever being sold around here.

Did you folks out west ever see something called the PA Flinter? PA until a few years ago required smoothbore m/l flintlocks and T/C made one for people who needed or just wanted a smoothbore. I think it was .54.

No ,I haven't seen a PA flinter. As for the half round half octagon I do recall that. If I recall right they were rifle models of the Scouts with I think 24" or maybe 26" barrels.
My guns are full octagon and the carbine barrel length.
I keep coming across models that I have never seen before and when I contact T/C they aren't much help. I still haven't found anyone at T/C or other wise that can provide info on the Cody Scout model. I do know that they were made in both 50cal. and 54cal. as I've seen both. I've only seen the Texas in 50cal.
The fire at the factory has made things tough.
As for the twist rate it looks like the early guns were 1:20 54cal. and 1:38 50cal. and then maybe they went to 1:48.
