Hi,
I/m a new member and I'm wanting to buy a Pennsylvania flintlock kit. Something reasonable in price 300 - 400 range. Any suggestions.

Look at the Traditions line of traditional rifles. They have a great selection and I think their Kentucky (it used to) still comes in a kit form.

thank you, I did you at them but was hoping someone would make a Pennsylvania. I found a lot of places that had percussion but was out of stock with the flintlocks. Maybe discontinuing.
What is your opinion of the traditions.

I have three Traditions Arms Traditional rifles. Two are percussion. One is a flintlock. Two have a 1-48 twist and one is a 1-66 twist. All of them are very good shooters. And the flintlock is a nice fast lock.

You might see if Lyman makes a kit for the Lyman Great Plains rifle still. That would be in your price range and they are a great rifle. Check Third Generation Shooters Supply. They have good prices.
