I hope you get some good results on this I am not in the market but am always a fan of old-world craftsmanship. I have a family heirloom that is along the same lines + the history is always interesting. I am fortunate to also have the bullet mould + powder horn along with the pictures of every elder passing on the rifle to the next generation since the awn of photography.

One place to start is Tennessee Valley Muzzleloading (TVM). They have several types that can be customized to your preferences.

Another source is to pickup a copy of Muzzleloader magazine. Besides having some interesting articles on traditional muzzleloaders it's also where many builders advertise.

I have built many of them; PM me your email and I will send you a picture of one I have for sale. It is a 54 cal, fast twist, 100% curly maple stock. Flintlock of course. Cap locks are too modern and unreliable.

Agreed. I subscribed to Muzzleloader for over 10 years and it does have some great rifle makers advertising there as well.

If you are looking for a custom built I can highly recommend Tim Williams in West Virginia. Tim’s rifles are built to be hunted and shot, shoot really well, and carry and look great. Tim is also a pleasure to work with. Check him out at www.williamsflintlocks.com.

I have heard very good things about the Kibler rifles.
I have a Marshfield (club butt) fowler built for me by Mike Brooks, who I can personally recommend.

I have been building them since 1969; but not commercially. Here is a couple I built; I have built several Northwest Trade guns; mostly as rifles as I don't want to build a smooth bore; all originals are smooth bores and plain wood.
The Virginia is curly Ash.

Allen, I just looked at your gallery. That "simple" John Rupp rifle is outstanding.
