45 cal flintlock bullet rifle
      #364944 - 27/04/22 03:42 AM

Hello all.
This gun belongs to a man who can't hunt anymore. It was broken at the wrist and I did the repairs. Now he's asking me to help him sell it rather then ship it back to him all the way across the country.
It is very long in the LOP at 15" and I will shorten it for $150 if anyone asked me to. I can get it back to about 13-3/4 at the shortest, and not have it look odd.

His sale price is $1400. Much lower then the cost to make a new one because it is a "repair job".

It's a Green Mountain barrel originally made for the 45 cartridge shooters but converted into a muzzleloader. No mold comes with it because he has others that he also shoots, and he is keeping the mold for them. Paper patched bullets are what he was using. It has the peep sight and was zeroed at 100 I believe, so that would be a good place to start with a PP mold of around 400 grains.
PM me if interested. The payments come to me because he wants me to take the cost of the repairs I've done from the payment first, and then send him the rest.

Also any additional gunsmithing (like shortening the stock) would be payed to me directly as well as all shipping costs.
