Always lusted after one of those roman nosed PA flinters, beautiful rifles! Just never saw one I could afford.

I have a Hawken style in .54 cal. I like the looks of a Pennsylvania Long rifle flintlock too. One in .32 cal would make a neat squirrel, small game gun.

This Florida sow didn't really know she was killed by a "primitive" patched round ball fired from a Lyman Deerstalker at thirty yards, offhand.

If anyone has a .54 TC Hawkins they would want to trade for a .50 TC Hawkins shoot me a PM. I can not locate one to date. I have two .50 Hawkins.

I like the "look" of the Hawkins.

One of those .32 would be fun to shoot. I have a lil .45 Seneca that is a pure joy to shoot.

This.

I’m not a muzzleloader. But if I wanted a flintlock, I’d want a .32 in the eastern longrifle style. How many shots would I take each year with a .54 compared to a .32? I’d probably shoot a .32 a lot more often. And how many times would I be in the woods each year with a .54 compared to a .32? I’d probably small game hunt with a .32 a lot more often too.

And with a .32 I believe you can even load a 00 Buck ball in a pinch?

I understand Hershel House makes the best. If you can wait and can afford it.

I always liked the Hawken style rifle. Big caliber, usually 54, heavy thick half stock not easy to break and excellent club if needed. Itís very utilitarian and basic.
