Im glad you asked Sir.
I am a pure traditionist.
After playing with a few production guns over the years. I never found one that was worth a darn.
I only shoot one rifle, It does everything I need it to. I can ring the 100 yard gong, or bring home the meat.
I got it the old fashion way, I made it
Its not rocket science, and I have not found one person that could not do it.
There are very few production pieces that come anywhere close to a hand made one.
For $700ish you can get a Jim Chambers kit, and have a superior firearm.
If you want to pay a few 100 bcuks, and put up with misfires, breakage, and poor quality assembly, then knock yourself out.
Id rather be shooting.
To answer your question: 45 cal, rice 42in barrel, Crocket set triggers, Chambers Lock, modified by Mr Rice. A hunk of TN black walnut, and all rusted iron hardware.
