They are a great looking gun. I started looking for one last fall. Gander said they couldnt even get them. Bass pro said they could get one every now and then but they sold instantly (guess they had a waiting list?)
I have always been a traditional guy with black powder, patched round balls and flint locks. Hunting in the rain with the flinter for the past two years has made me rethink the whole ML thing. Hope to have a mustang by next season. Cabels does sell them through their mag. I personaly would like to hold onto one before I buy it?
One of the things I struggle with when afield is keeping my rifle clean and in good working order. Small amounts of dust and dirt collect moisture; moisture can freeze rendering your action immovable when you need it most. I have seen this happen on multiple occasions, and over time, I’ve learned the cause and how to prevent this from happening.
The first thing that you need to avoid before going afield is leaving excess oil on the gun. Oil will trap dirt and sand in all the wrong places....
