My .50 Jim Kiebler Colonial Rifle Flintlock build

I’ve built two Flintlocks so far, a Jim Kiebler Colonial Rifle in .50 Cal, and a Traditions Prairie Hawken, also in .50 Cal. I upgraded the lock on the Prairie Hawken with an L&R Lock.

I took a “button” buck in PA with the Colonial Rifle 3 days after I completed the build!

I love hunting with flintlocks, and I think I love building them even more.

Here are a few photos of the Kiebler Colonial Rifle, taken the day I put the final coats of wax over the finish:
