Default If you were to ask Santa for a new ML rifle, which one? (no customs)

I already own 50-cal 1:28s and 1:66 MLs. So I would ask Santa for either a 45-cal in 1:20 or a 54-cal in 1:48. My pick is......

Lyman Deerstalker 54-cal 1:48 twist.
What's yours?

Not sure why, but that ultimate Barnesaddict has strikes my interest.

No customs killed it for me. Otherwise, it would be a custom Hawken as close to the original as possible.

I thought about a Pedersoli half-stock, instead of the Lyman. I picked a half-stock because I promised myself I would never buy another full-stock ML again. A couple of those Pedersoli long rifles are not considered custom MLs and are beautiful rifles.

My original post should have said major ML company MLs. You know, a manufacturer that's commonly referred to in our discussions here. Which I suppose would also include the house brand from Cabelas and Dixie Gun Works. I'm not sure there are any other major gun stores with a house brand..... are there?

Well, since we are asking a mythical being for something, can we ask for a mythical muzzleloader? I would really like "Santa" to bring me a muzzleloader that would field dress and drag out an animal for me. Maybe pack me up the big mountains since I'm getting old.

Just as mythical, maybe "Santa" could talk the "boss" into being all smiles and happiness when I go order me a Swinglock in .45 caliber with a 1:20 twist. Walnut stock with some really pretty grain. Rather than smiles I'll probably get a foot in the butt

A Remington smokeless is a good choice.

Remington does not offer a smokeless muzzle loading rifle and neither does Ultimate Firearms.

I would like a White Thunderbolt in either .451 or have Doc install a .410 barrel.

You guys are a bad influence. All this talk about flinters got me thinking I need one. Never thought I would want one or need another ML but the seed is growing possibly towards a plains rifle.
