My favorite gun shop trades and sells a lot of flintlocks and in-lines. They tend to sneer at traditional percussion rifles and offer a maximum of $50.00 for a trade in. I have a few percussion rifles, but much prefer flintlocks. I am a traditionalist and have no desire to own an in-line. Nothing against in-lines or their owners, just personal preference. All the best...
Gil

And percussions are not "Traditional"?? If I check my history I will find that the Hawken came out originally as a flint lock and then they came out with a converssion around 1830 or 1840 to replace the "frizzen" and flint "cock" with a cap nipple and percussin "cock"... My T/C Hawken is "cap & ball"

Confused Its hard to believe the mentality of some Shops and the way that they push the inlines. There are a lot of individuals that I have met out here that have gotten into muzzleloading and they wanted something Traditional but were swayed into an inline by the shop. I don't know but is the mark up better for profit on an inline??? I don't think so!

I had a great experience with my flintlock a couple of years ago with 2 guys that were shooting inlines. I made a bet with them on a steak shoot that I could cut the stake quicker with my flint than they could together with their inlines. Very Happy Very Happy I'll say this, that was sure an easy $50.00 to win!!! wtf Shocked Confused The look on their faces was priceless, I killed the stake with my 6th shot and they had only fired 3 shots total in the same time. Inlines may be good for the first shot but they are sure slow on repeat shots in compairson to a Traditional. Cool

In Lines Harrruuumpph ...
I wonder why as well that they push flints and inlines , especially , over percussion ..
No inlines for me .. flints are fun and a real challenge , for me anyways .. Percussion I prefer for " serious" hunting ..

Hah two old salts and rulers of the raging main CAN agree ..
HHMM interesting ..
Lots of states are starting to treat inlines as modern , for hunting , which I think is totally appropriate ..
I dont see all the hoopla over them myself ..
Plastic stocks ?? Gimme wood , pretty wood
Scopes ?? sure they had telescopics in the first BIG One ( War between the Americans and Yankees ) , rude and elementary , tho , but , they were on wooden stocked rifles ..
Oh Well , Enuff ranting ..
Jack

Jack...Then I believe you would appreciate my T/C (almost custom) .50 Hawken. A gunsmith friend of mine in Seattle went to all the gun shops in Seattle and hand picked each of the parts for this rifle. I spent the next 6 months finishing it and assembling it. I about drove my wife mad with Tongue oil and the month of evenings hand rubbing the stock. The barrel is Plum Brown instead of blued...I have photos if you like or have I driven you mad yet...My problem is I can't put them on here. DallanC thinks I'm a computer whizz... Very Happy

Bushmaster,
Percussion rifles are traditional, but in-lines are not. That was my point, that I prefer flintlocks and have a few percussions around for fun. All the best...

"Percussion Rifles are traditional" No kidding....

I'm for primitive hunting and THAT precludes inlines...As you said...They are modern rifles...

How can they consider an inline for traditional hunting??
I use a Brown Bess for birds and if we had a black powder hunt for deer here I would use my Zouave.
Bushmaster- you are right about browning a barrel, when I built my Kentuckian (flint lock) I browned the barrel. Looks SO good.

Ken - I just hope that you didn't brown your barrel the same way that Bushy did! Smile
