I've had several and still have one.  They are muzzle heavy and somewhat awkward.  I cut 6" off my latest and it became a different rifle.  Much better balanced and easy to handle.

 :D   I had a .50cal TMR flinter back in 1981.... was a modified kit... made her slimmer and closer to E. TN profile...sweet gun  and a tack driver with 80 gr.2F at 60 yds. .... I have custom TN rifles in .40 & .45 now..... been horsin' for another Dixie .50 lately... good gun at inexpensive price.......  Thanx again, Boys...... 8) 8)

 ??? ???.....Sequatchie...Had no trouble with my kit I built and modified for a better E. TN look..... sparked good, shot good....which does bring up a question in my hollow head, however.... On another post in the builder's column, I think, was a discussion on the steels used in making rifle barrels .... I wonder with so many   U.S. steel mills being closed, where the steel is made for barrel manufacture...??.....  ??? ???

Note from a moderator:

We currently have at least 3 "barrel steel" threads going in the Building and Shooting sections here.  This is a Want-to-Buy post.  Let's not start another barrel steel thread here too.

The original poster wants to buy a Dixie Tennessee rifle.  Please limit your responses to the original topic.  Thanks.
