Here's a shot of the recent on-line action rifle I won. It's a 50 cal CVA flint Mountain Rifle, most likely a late 70's gun for the son/son-in-law to use.

Is that the type of gun that requires the one trigger to ignite the powder and other snaps the hammer or something. The mech. at work has one that he described as using 2 triggers.

TG, triggers are all different. These are as follows: cock the hammer, pull the rear trigger to set the front hair trigger. Once the hair trigger is pulled the hammer, which has a piece of flint held in it's jaws, strikes the frizzen and scrapes hot steel sparks which sets off the pan powder which sets off the main charge. If it all works it goes woosh bang.
Ronn, you saw who the rifle is for..........whats a dad/father-in-law good for :nerd:

The big deer sight reminds me of what I'm susposed to shoot at.:w00t:
