I'm looking into the puchace of a muzzleloader but here's the catch. I DON'T WANT AN INLINE I'm looking for a more traditional flint lock in possably a .50 or better yet a .45 cal. the time period woul be the 7 years war (french and Indian).

Any help would be great.

Ghostbear...If your serious about the time period F&I war your looking at a smoothbore. If your serious about historically correct then your only option is custom built, either specific for you or look for a used one. Keep an eye on the following site. www.trackofthewolf.com

Dixon's is a good resource also as mentioned above.

Here is a pic of mine which is historically correct. It is 20 gauge with a 48" barrel that was hand made to meet the exact dimensions of only a small handful of originals that were found in a Carolina's dig. Not many originals from that time period survived. Don't mind the horn it doesn't fit the time period but I love it.

I understand flintlock takes concentration to shoot and I would not want the distraction of the hammer dropping any closer to my face than it has to be!!!

I have a 20 ga French Fusil de Chasse. Bought at dixon's gunmaker's fair from tip curtis for about a grand in the white. It is a great gun and with a lot of practice you can get good at shooting
