View Full Version : WTS custom flintlock

07-01-2013, 05:05 PM
This was made from a kit but given much flair by the builder. This gun was built by Ric Carter (waksupi)
it is a 54 caliber flintlock with a Large Siler lock tuned by waksupi, curly maple stock. this rifle has a green mountain .54 caliber barrel with a 1:66 twist rate for round balls. the trigger is a single trigger.
I am selling this rifle due to my wife being hurt and out of work for the last 2 months we have gotten behind and have to catch up. I am asking $1800 for this rifle. the buyer will also get a box of goodies with it.




here is a slide show throughout the build.


07-01-2013, 05:30 PM
My wife is very happy right now because I dont have $1800 to spend, But we both think that is one beautiful rifle. Sorry about your wife, things will get better.

07-01-2013, 07:53 PM
What an amazing rifle! I am sorry you have to part with it!

07-01-2013, 07:58 PM
WOW!!!! That is one beautiful rifle. Just bought another Shiloh or I'd be all over it.. That slide show didn't work for me, but your pictures on here just take my breath away.
Maybe I'll try to sell some stuff...quickly .. Luv it!

back up.


07-02-2013, 12:21 PM
While I have not seen this rifle, I have seen many muzzleloaders made by Ric - all well made, emphasis on being light and well balanced with exceptional triggers. . . . Oh, yeah. Ric will be making between two and four rifles for me as quickly as barrels are ready for him.

07-02-2013, 04:37 PM
Back up again for the evening crowd.


07-02-2013, 05:51 PM
Please, please will somebody buy this beauty. I could maybe afford the gun but not the divorce that would come with it.

Let's see if we can let him keep his rifle. I know what medical bills can amount to. And I know what it's like to sell something that is near/part of you. It is really HARD to do. This rifle is probably offered up for sale because it is one of the most valuable rifles to him he owns. This site has over 29,000 members. If 10% of our members can send $5.00 we can raise $14,500 towards medical/other bills and he can keep his prize rifle. This site is without question the most informative, helpful, personal and caring site I have ever joined and the members appear to sincerely care about the other members. Let's step up and help. PM sent for mailing address.

All for giving to family in time of need. It's not charity if its given with love and we all know Ajax is quick to help out all of us lost sheep, count me in for $5.

07-02-2013, 08:07 PM
I could do that without a problem..

07-02-2013, 08:07 PM

07-02-2013, 08:17 PM
I would hate to have to give up that rifle myself, I reckon I need some kind of address to send to.

07-02-2013, 08:18 PM
I'm in too! need address

07-02-2013, 08:26 PM
count me in. where do I send the money? paypal gift sent.
if you can send more DO IT.
we need someone to act as a banker or something to get the pot built up FAST.

07-02-2013, 08:30 PM
Please post address to mail financial gifts to, and don't sell the rifle just yet! Since there are several members who probably won't see this in time, I will give for me plus 9 of the ones that won't see it. $50

Prayers for you and your wife,

Rick Myers

You guys rock. my wife and i are humbled by the generosity extended to us by all of you.
I don't know how to or have the words to say thank you. As of 2149 this evening we have enough to pay all our bills counting what is coming in the mail, so i can keep my rifle thank you guys.


07-04-2013, 02:42 AM
Medical bills and/or lack of income can sure wipe you out in a hurry. I'm glad you can keep your rifle; it's a work of art for sure.

Waksupi- You are a true craftsman. I am impressed.

07-04-2013, 03:25 AM
Another $50 send. Good luck

Shameless bump.
Needed the snail mail address, post 17 if you're looking. Paypal a few posts down. Been a financial disaster for me this week but the hospital bills haven't showed up yet, I can afford to help a good man when he's down.
