Very nice looking rifles sir.
I have a couple, nothing like yours, a Renegade 54, and Hawkins 50 cal.
And a few handguns also.

I got a "Like" for my post in this thread and had to read all the new post since I had posted. I shouldn't have done that. It just got me started again wanting a nicer rifle than I own now. I have spent several hours looking over the guns offered by TVM. The caliber choice would be easy. I would get a 45 caliber percussion gun. My favorite gun now is a kit built Cabelas Hawken in 45 caliber. I guess I have shot well past a thousand shots through that gun alone. And when I bought the kit it cost a whopping $129 dollars.
But for that $129 I got the absolute best looking gunstock wood I have. It has bands of gold mixed with the dark wood. Seen in the sunlight it looks like you could reach deep down in the wood. Over the years the wood has darken in a way that no stain will match. Only time will do that. And the barrel has 12 grooves IIRC. It almost looks like a deep groove Marlin Micro-Groove barrel. And that sucker will shoot. And it shoots round balls and 200gr Lee REAL bullets equally well. With the .45 ball I can hunt small game with a light load, deer with a heavy load and with the 200gr bullet animals bigger than deer like hogs or mule deer or even elk if I had to. But I have better guns for elk like my 54 caliber.
