    Just wondering what this might be worth. Got a guy wanting to trade an Inland M1 Carbine for it and just not looking to get burned on this.

    Not too far apart really. I would put both around $650- depending on the shape that the M1 is in. YMMV.

    1911's can be dangerous but a Trojan is safe enough to fuck with:evil

    That seems a little high. Black powder rifles are fairly inexpensive, even going through big stores like Cabelas. I just saw a T/C 50 cal stainless w/camo on Cabelas web site for $299. If you look around, there are some CVA's that are even cheaper (if price is a major concern).

    I have a .54 cal Knight that is a blast to shoot, but maybe not as versatile as a .50 cal. The .50 would be a little better for long range, especially if you are shooting the 150 gr powder loads and saboted bullets. 50 cal components are easier to find in the stores. Either caliber will work on game just fine.

    I do enjoy the .54. Shooting 500+ gr maxi balls is some good fun!

    Seems high to me too. Also, you can find .50 cal components cheaper. I'm not a big fan of red dots for hunting.

    i have a model 700 50 cal muzzle loader. here in nebraska the only rule is it has to load from the muzzle end. they're practically begging us to kill more whitetail.

    50 or 54? 54 cal stuff is hard to find here. 50 you can buy anywhere and the deer don't seem to much care either way.

    Depends on what you mean by "best" The world of 98k's is a very complex one....and in a general statement I would say the pre-war 98's to hold great value, there are some here and there that are much more valuable.

    Now as to the best shooting guns....eh....here there same same.....given that the guns are in like shape they will all shoot about the same....a bnz is going to shoot with a byf is going to shoot with a dot.

    The real shame is that place that sells them....I think the initials are MM. Biggest bunch of crooks out there....oh well now that the supply of 98k's are starting to dry up they can't rob people anylonger on those, but now are working the 91/30 and VZ angles.

    that A-bolt is in my wish list as well:thumb
    but in 308, I'would like the 300 ultra mag, but already know how does it feel to pay $2 per round with my 45-70 :p !!

    It did seem high to me, but it comes with bullets, a possibles kit/bag, CO2 ball discharger, ADCO red dot on quick release SS mounts (I'll have to take this off for hunting) etc.

    Wow, what a cool idea. I haven't looked at or even read about black powder stuff for decades. Last I knew, you screwed something in and yanked.

    Just put a 7 day hold on a Browning 1885 high wall .22-250 (1985 model) in hopes of doing some 'yote hunting this winter. Great looking piece of hardware, as much awe factor as my little bda .380. Hex barrell, falling block, 95% condition. Have a weekend to decide on oil for the furnace or a new toy.

    But the scope needs eventual upgrade (high country 6 - 24×40 I think on there now, Tasco?). Any thoughts on a good set up for this piece? I'm in Maine so those 400 yard shots would be almost non-existant. Whats the deal with those Nikon coyote scopes? Buying the brand? Never owned a scoped rifle (shoot black powder mostly now) so new territory for me.
