These are mine, I've had others but, this is what I have left. I also have a Italian 1858 Rem, Cap & ball and a muzzle loading, Montana barreled, target pistol.

This is my favorite target ML. I built it from a H&A kit. It has a 32", H&H 50 cal, 60 twist barrel. The forearm is attached to the receiver and the barrel is floated. I also made  apperiture sights for it.

My Traditions. I put a Sharon barrel on it. I made the hooked breech and drum and nipple to mount it.

My Italian “Hawkin", 45 cal. I bought this for my wife (She's gone but the rifle remains  ), I always loved the wood and finish on these (circa 1980's), very pretty rifles. I put a 50 cal TC barrel on it for her to shoot. It was very accurate at 900 fps.

My slug gun, it has a 38 cal Douglas barrel on it. No falts muzzle but, it has a timed bullet starter, milled for cross paper patches.

This one isn't marked, at all and maybe a original. It's 32", 50 cal, no hooked breech. I've never shot it but, it has the PERFECT drop and pull for the barrel sights.

Frank, I am presently going through a museum's collection of firearms that has not seen the light of day in 50+ years. If your last isn't original, it is a very nicely made craft rifle! Ric

For the muzzle loading fans. If you ever get the chance visit The Museum of The Fur Trade just east of Chadron,Nebraska. I was there a couple of years ago and there are a lot of muzzle loaders on display. At least a couple hundred. And a lot of other artifacts from the fur trade.
