Default A&H Flintlock

Anybody have any experience with these rifles? I have the chance to pick one up at a very reasonable price. It has very nice maple stock and browned barrel. The frizzen flips out of the way smartly, and the lock seems to spark well. Would like to hear any pros and cons before I commit to buying.

MLF has a lot of posts about them.
One needs to remember that the company started out strong, was sold and moved to another state after which some say that their quality went downhill.
After going out of business, Traditions bought their remaining inventory and sold the leftover guns at a discount.
Then Traditions came out with a very similar mountain rifle of their own.
Some said that Traditions still has some of the original parts.
All of the links work but may take extra seconds to redirect.
Please let us know how it works out.

Thanks for the excellent info. The gun I am looking at is a Missouri built rifle with a 1:66 twist .50 caliber. The stock is beautiful tiger striped maple and appears to be sound with no cracks discernible in the barrel channel or in the lock area. It does have a peculiar brown barrel finish. Not a chocolate brown but a grey/brown. The bore looks very clean. I put my endo scope down it and could find no rust or pitting. The asking price is $200.00, and from what I have read this appears to be a great deal. I'm gonna go for it.

It's sounds like a fine rifle and a great deal.
You can't go wrong buying that gun.
The parts alone are worth much more than that.
