One of the best ways to get a real hands-on muzzleloading experience is to build a rifle yourself. Easy to read instructions guide you through the building process to a beautifully finished product. There is no greater feeling of accomplishment than knowing you built a fully functional rifle for shooting or display.
The rifle carried across the Great Plains by western pioneers and fur trappers was the culmination of percussion firearms development. Originally designed and built by such famous makers as Hawken, Gemmer and Demick, the Great Plains Rifle represents the most reliable design and finest workmanship available. No other factory-assembled rifle or kit offers the authentic style and impeccable design of Lyman's Great Plains Rifle.
This classic muzzleloader offers legendary, high quality features such as a 32" barrel with 1 in 60" twist for patched ball and hunting loads, double set triggers, and Hawken style percussion "snail" with clean out screw. The rifle includes a separate ramrod entry thimble, nose cap and reliable coil spring lock with correct lock plate. Lyman's Great Plains Rifle Kit comes in a .50 cal. Flintlock. The finished Lyman Great Plains Flintlock Rifle is an attractive, traditional muzzleloader that is rugged, well built and meant to last.

Great Beginner Flintlock Build review by Ian Tewksbury on 9/2/2018
"I bought this kit this Summer because I wanted to get into black powder hunting. I was apprehensive about building my own rifle, but it has been a dream of mine since I was little so I went ahead and did it. The build itself isn't too difficult. I only needed a few chisels, a rasp, several grits of sandpaper, and a screwdriver to do the bulk of the work. A good resource for first timers trying this build is the youtube series by duelist1954 on youtube. After finishing my rifle, I took it out to shoot and it is a tackdriver. At 25 yards each shot went through the same hole. I plan to get it sighted in at 75-100 yards for early muzzleloader season here in Virginia. Also Muzzleloaders.com has great customer service and I can't thank them enough."

"I bought this rifle thinking Lyman was a better quality rifle than Traditions. About 90 percent of the way through the build, I received an email from Muzzle-loaders.com that there was a recall on some of the Lyman barrels and breech, that was Feb. I finally received a box to send the barrel back at the end of March. Who knows when I will receive my new barrel. I am being told probably the end of April. Lyman has really dropped the ball. I understand things happen, but 3 or 4 months to solve the issue is poor service in my book, so I'm giving this product 0 stars. Buy a traditions"
