Looking for Great Plains rifle
« on: September 04, 2017, 10:18:11 am »
Looking at purchasing a GPR you guys know of a good website to either purchase a kit, parts or even just the completed rifle? Just looking for suggestions or if you have one you wish to let go maybe we could work something out;)

Hi Bryce, try Track of the Wolf or Dixie Gunworks.
Lakeland, Florida
 If you have to pull the trigger, is it really archery?

You can shop around and find the guns and kits at a bargain, cheaper than dirt had a good sale on the kits a while back, $350 or so but sold out quickly.

I will take a look and see what I can find.

Last time I looked Midway USA had the lowest price but they are inline with everyone else now.

Bass distributing has the flint version for; Your Price: $482.96. These things have really gone up since looked last. Gunbroker has a bunch of them but you have to be careful on used, someone's listed shiny barrel could be pitted and roached in my evaluation.  They come up pretty often on the M/L boards classified, usually for around $350 or $400.

Best price I found for a new one in .54 is on Gunbroker, $475 shipped, item item # 686351616. This is a percussion gun but they have the same in flint for about the same price.
