I made this Ohio style gun for my daughter some years ago, .36.

Here's mine - a Tip Curtis Lancaster in .32, 36" straight Green Mountain barrel. It's my first muzzleloader. I got it yesterday, and fired it for the first time this morning. In the afternoon I took it to the field. We don't have much in the the way of tree squirrels where I live, but plenty of ground squirrels.

   .40 Cal Flintlock that I picked up this past spring.  (Seller told me Jim Webb was the gunsmith that made it, but the barrel is unsigned. Doesn't bother me a bit. She is a beautiful, working rifle.
  The target was 30 yds away, 1st two shots actually "keyholed" 3rd shot had a ever so slight hangfire, but still probably dropped the critter for the skillet. 
  Only used 25 gr FFF, that lonnnng 46" barrel makes the most of gas pressure!

She started out as a Jack Garner .36 but I had Bobby Hoyt make it into a much better .40 w/ radius groove rifling.

Anyone build a squirrel rifle not here yet?

Here’s mine...it’s a .36x42” Green Mountain barrel, L&R Late English lock I got from Stoner Creek, and a set of Dennis’ Gillespie hardware. Nothin’ fancy, just a 7 pound nutcracker.

Nothing fancy Greg?  She's a beauty.  I am guessing you already figured out that those GM barrels are tack drivers and not fussy.  I have a swamped GM .50 barrel set back in the safe until I rise to the top of my friend's "build list".  God Bless,   Marc

Thanks Marc.  I’ve used a lot of Green Mountain barrels, mostly on my 19th century cartridge rifles, and I really like them. It’s a shame they don’t make the swamped muzzleloader barrels anymore. I have a 44” .50 swamped sitting in a corner, for “build after next”...but first, a 16 gauge fowler.

GM barrels are accurate, that's for sure.  I have a "C" weight .40 GM barreled rifle.  A tad "weighty" but not all that bad since the swamp helps it balance so smoothly.
