    Any Flintlock Rifle Builders in Canada?

    Are there any left? I have a bad hankering for a poor boy design rocklock squirrel rifle. I know I can get one sent up across the line without too much hassle, just would like to support a Canuck Artisan if possible and without waiting 3 years......

    I know the stock on this one looks like its been saturated in a hundred years of gun oil but it is exactly the look I'm after, not fond of the gingerbread I see on most.....

    My google fu isn't that good today and I'm fairly lost in the world of BP let alone who builds but I do know I want a flinter.

    Right on, Thank You!

    Just downloaded the catalog from Track of the Wolf and ordered 3 books. Little more to these Flinters than I imagined, pretty cool........

    Do you have any muzzle loader experience? A flintlock is not the best way to start muzzle loaders. They can be finicky and annoying.

    I had a Jaeger style fainter built by a guy in Lethbridge a bunch of years ago. No idea if he is still around. He did a decent if not spectacular job for a reasonable price.

    Good luck in the search, I'm not into BP currently, but I definitely see the appeal.
    the wild still lingered in him and the wolf in him merely slept

    Ya gotta try it, its quite fun. Slow but good fun when the rifle goes BOOOOOOOOOM! and big cloud of smoke. BP on steel is good fun because the huge projectiles make a nice CLANGGG.

    Zero BP experience but I like jumping in the deep end and there is so much to read out there...... I figure a true top end lock coupled with a White Lightnin' vent liner coupled with swamped barrel could help alleviate some of the ignition stuff but I have tons to learn.

    Thank You! BP has been picking at me for years. I always used the excuse that there is no special season provisions in BC for hunting but whatever, it'll be fun to have at the cabin with the kids....

    Truly looking forward to it, almost pulled the trigger on a Traditions from Cabelas but for a Flintlock me thinks that it better be quality kit. One of the few times that the 'I want it now' has been overcome with patience to do it correctly.... The Pedersoli line is still chirping at me tho..... ;-)

    American Long Rifles

    One of or perhaps the most prominent builders on there is Canadian. His name is D. Taylor Aspergia (IIRC). Fantastic forum for anything flint related.
