54 flinter arrived as stated in very nice condition. I've installed a TC peep on it and now will locate a front globe sight for it. This set-up gives my eyes the best chance for good open sight hunting. I'm going to order ball-ets for both the 50 and 54 flinters as these are legal in PA flintlock season. My TC PA hunter with a 1-66 barrel twist shoots these bullets way better than a round ball so the 1-48" twist of the Lyman should shoot them or possibly another style conical like a Lyman real bullet or a TC maxi hunter, Buffalo bullet also. Range time and some cost involved to get all the ML stuff together to get things sighted in is in store. I've never had a reason to sight in a rear peep gun and have heard they can be a challenge to get right?? Both rifles will shoot black powder.
Here's a question: I have an un-fired Austin Halleck 50 cal mountain rifle and would like to shoot it. Shooting it will reduce the value some but we're talking 600.00 top value. I know, what good is it sitting in the vault, just curious what you'all think about the subject.
