Hello. Boredom is a sad thing.   :(

I been thinking of about another .32, but remembering I like the look of Tradition Crockett rifle.  Rather than being a cap lock, wouldn't it be nice if it was a flintlock.  Now, I am not asking if I can slap a lock on it. I'm thinking of having one built with a Rice A weight 3/4in. straight barrel in .32 with Chambers Late Ketland lock, lightning vent liner with a nice maple half stock.

 At this point, i am just day dreaming, but if i call a builder, say like Tip Curtis or Sitting Fox, would they make one for me or would they just hang up on me?

I built a half stock mountain rifle once.  It was pretty similar to what your are referring to.

Oh, so it's based on a actual style.  I assume that it was a fantasy piece.

Sounds like you need a Jim kibler southern mountain rifle in 32 it isn't exactly what you're asking for but you won't be disappointed in it I don't think. And I believe you could put it together without any problems .just my humble opinion

I do not know if the exact architecture is based on a particular style or not.  But yes, you have half stock long rifles.

If you call Tip Curtis he will probably tell you what HE thinks you should build. If so, listen to him. He has a ton of experience and you might learn something valuable.
I have no idea about Sitting Fox. They remain a dark hole to me that I can't seem to glean any facts from.

I thought the Tradition's Crockett was a fantasy rifle.
Then there is this one, Taylor re-worked for me.

I owned a Crockett for many years and loved it.  Can't remember what forum but years ago a guy with a Crockett had it converted to flint with nothing replaced except the lock, IIRC.  It did require machining away the bolster.  Below is my poorboy SMR but with a full stock.  It's a .36 rather than a .32 but has the 3/4" barrel.  Though longer than the Crockett it weighs about the same or maybe a little less.

I have an original Penebaker rifle in .35 (1842) that has been in my family forever.  It is a 1/2 stock with 40" 3/4" octagon barrel.  It is percussion, and it looks like a "Crockett" except it has a hooked but plate, and more drop at the comp and a maple stock.  So the concept is not foreign.

Nemovir, not familiar with the Traditions Crocket but working on a similar idea. The lower rifle is an original, such as it is. The upper one in the photo Iím building as a flintlock. I think the old gun was .36. New one is .45.

How about a lottery?  Everyone's name gets put in a hat and the winner gets banned.  That's the democratic way and is, at least, fair.  8)

Postpone the Guillotine for a while.Actually IMHO a neat little English style half stock like Smart Dog made
would be a dandy in 32 caliber.Fine lines,balance and fast handling for sure.
