    Cookie, are there any marking on the barrel, names, numbers etc? If so, another pic of them might be a help.

    .32 .45 or .50? Nice flinter
    Real guns start with the number 3 or bigger and make two holes, one in and one out." -

    A cobber of mine is after a flint smokepole. I'll mention it to him. I'd be counselling him to offer $500 or maybe a wee bit more.

    Yep was thinking same as maca 5-600
    45 is very popular black powder cal
    Should sell no worries I would love a flintlock all mine are caplock and bpcr’s
    But im not in a Position to buy right now though
    Be a nice rifle for someone
    Though I wouldn’t suggest a flinter for someone new to muzzle loaders
    They are fussy buggers

    I have the same rifle Pedersoli Kentucky 50cal. Bought mine second hand in new condition 3 years ago with both the Cap Lock and flint lock. Cost $650. Another sold about the same time for $700 Flint only. These were on Trademe

    Yours looks to be an older version. The barrels are now blued and have wooden ramrods: $500 - $600 would be fair. Browned barrel ,it may have been a kit so perhaps worth a little less.

    Mate of mine who had a 50 cal one called it a flinch lock, as it was a bit unreliable due to a weak spring?. Changing from real flints to a piece of firestick improved the ignition immensely. It looks very nice and Im nearly tempted
