Hello, good afternoon I am new to this a form and would appreciate any help I can get on this new project i am getting into.
As I understand, being a muzzleloader, I am not under the same restrictions and laws as a rifle or other guns? I believe that I can carry and have this muzzleloader without FID card and other restrictions.
I received this gun has a raffle at the Topsfield fair, and I'm interested in finding out the manufacture as well as the quality of this firearm. I have been unable to locate any specific name on the gun anywhere except for a symbol left-hand side near the breach of the barrel.
I found a indicator that is made in Italy on the trigger guard, and it's a 54 caliber.
Thanks advance
Charlie

Posting a picture of the gun would help in the identification it. Strange that it has no markings. It might have been custom made.

Next step, is to figure out how to post pictures I guess.. I have hey picture of the side of the barrel where the sero-number is and the symbol. Maybe I can publish that. Still trying to figure out this form and its symbols.

Get yourself a photobucket account, up load it there, and post a link here.

I shoot Flints, caplocks, and inlines. Im sure that we can figure it out with our collective knowledge on this board.

In the mean time, is it a flint, caplock, inline? Check out Lyman, they make the Great Plains Rifle. Its a well made traditional ML.

My .54's has taken many deer, and have done well in quite a few woods walks, both flint and cap.

Topsfield, MA? if so be careful. Check with NRA ILA to get current regulations and still be careful.

A 54 cal muzzle loader with heavy lead bullets is still a powerful hunting rife. The slow but heavy bullets work well on all North American game. I prefer to use full bore cast or swaged bullets but lighter sabo bullets work OK on deer and smaller game.You are not under gunned if taking Moose with a 450 Gr bullet in a 54 cal muzzle loader.
