    Perhaps this Trade Me listing BLACK POWDER THOMPSON CENTER 54 CAL Listing #: 2244006040 may be of interest...........delivery will have to be addressed 'tho.

    It was a confusion of ideas between him and one of the lions he was hunting in Kenya that had caused A. B. Spottsworth to make the obituary column. He thought the lion was dead, and the lion thought it wasn't.

    At recent Wellington branch auction and the other auction, they where very popular and attracted many bids (same for good original 303's, still wondering if they are back in fashion?), expect to have a bidding war so don't go short on cash and be disappointed.

    Well, it meets the requirement of ".....a black powder replica....." and we now know TWO THINGS

    1...Bluecod is not interested in an original .50 black powder weapon, must be a replica and
    2...Bluecod MUST be able to collect from the seller.

    That's one more than we knew before my post, but despite narrowing the options down, there is still a shitload of uncertainty remaining.

    It's an inline muzzleloader so nope don't meet that requirement.
