LYMAN GREAT PLAINS RIFLE 54cal PERCUSSION
The rifle carried across the Great Plains by western pioneers and fur trappers was the culmination of percussion firearms development. This “Great Plains” rifle was designed and built by such famous makers as Hawken, Gemmer and Demick to the specifications of experienced backwoodsmen. Only the best and most reliable designs and finest workmanship were acceptable. Today, as in the 1800’s, the experienced black powder shooter is looking for a very special rifle. No other factory rifle offers the authentic style and design of Lyman’s Great Plains Rifle. This classic muzzleloader offers such high quality features as a 32" barrel with 1 in 60" twist for patched ball and hunting loads, double set triggers, Hawken style percussion “snail” with clean out screw, separate ramrod entry thimble and nose cap, and reliable coil spring lock with correct lock plate. Factory assembled.

overall pretty good rifle

I am not that good at writing, apologies in advance, but here goes. Have not shot it yet,but have handled it a bit. Overall it seems pretty nice. The butt plate is my primary complaint in that it has a pretty sharp edge on the top and bottom of the curve. besides that, it feels good in the hands, though slightly front heavy, which is to be given, it doesn't have the block of metal that is a receiver. My only other complaint is that the metal piece at the back of the ram rod is screwed directly onto the wood and it ended up falling off inside barrel while I was cleaning the storage grease that was applied at the factory to the bore. I managed to get it out and fixed it by putting a piece of patch between the threads and the rod and it is now on securely.
