Mickey Mouse Production, surly you jest my good friend! Toto we're not in Kansas anymore. BB, I think we've circled the prey and are ready to pull the nets with the day's catch.
I think I'll do the photo test anyway just see people's opinion, hopefully, honest, not politically incorrect ones. Time to get out the Amish wood polish for the sub standard walnut and putrid maple used on these rifles. Might as well tie them to the rafts in the pool and use them as anchors. The Lyman flint 54 GPR I had was an ok gun definitely a cut above CVA's similar marketed gun. The walnut stock was as FG said was a decent not brilliant piece of wood. I could have striped it down and inproved the looks a whole lot but chose to sell it to up-grade to a TC Hawken. Right now the score seems to be TC followed by Lyman, with CVA in the distance about where I'd figured they would be. Just for note: The expensive Hatfield flint rifle I had had a crappy frizen and barely would spark. They missed the frizzen hardening school training seminar. I sold that one too. They did use some nice maple in their stocks.
