A fine musket and well built. Just a couple of short comings to note. The stirrup on this replica is about .060" short as compared with an original lock. This makes the main spring stack up pressure befor full cock is reached. The flash channel had some burrs that made the gun fail to fire often but was easy to clear with a 1/8" drill bit threw the clean out hole. Groups at 25 and 50 yards with 60 grains of GOEX and mini ball are quite good. Wood and metal fit and finish are both good. All in all money well spent.
