Default My new Plains Rifle

Got her in trade and she came in yesterday. Custom .50cal Plains Rifle, 28" custom "no name or numbers" barrel with a 1:48 twist and deep groove rifling. L&R lock, sweet double set triggers. Stock is just amazing on it. Sorry that the pics don't do the rifle justice!




250gr Thor Concials @ 50 yards with 90gr American Pioneer 3f. Round balls are next on the list tomorrow!

FG, Your Custom sounds more like the Traditions Frontier Muzzleloader
the only difference is the Brass.

LOL no, my rifle is nothing like a traditions, completely custom made and high quality.

Kinda like comparing a Ferrari to a chevy impala

HM, after comparing the following, why wait? I think you'd be better off with the Traditions Frontier model if these are the type of features you're interested in.

FG's Custom? No name & no numbered 28" barrel has a 1:48 twist w/deep groove rifling, just like the Traditions Frontier Muzzleloader but Traditons sports an Octagon barrel.

Double set triggers just like Traditions.

wood furniture just like Traditions but Traditions only uses a "Select" hardwood.

F&G, your custom uses a standard classic L&R Model 2100P Lock (nothing custom about it) while Traditions uses a Custom Lock, with fully adjustable Lock & Double-Set trigger adjusments.

FG, I really do like the looks of your "custom" plains rifle but comparatively, I don't think it's even Close to Traditions Quality!
It's too bad we're so far away from each other, I'd really love to have a closer look at your plains rifle.. Custom or not.

Traditions frontier is a cheap gun plain and simple.

This rifle uses a Siler lock, they look very close to an L&R.

LOL now i know you are just talking some smack because if you honestly think traditions makes quality sidelocks, you must not have ever owned anything of high quality!
