it sure is a shame that the quality of lyman product have suffered over the past few decades, i have no experience with their BP guns or sharps reproductions, but bullet molds and much of the reloading supplies are all inferior mass produced stuff, and the sights are not what they used to be. I'll never forget buying a new powder scale from them about 20 years ago It was a super light plastic piece of junk. I was expecting an ohaus cast metal frame scale.
Sharps is still in business they are the real deal you only go around one in this world, best to you
