Mr. Green

A guy had one at a shoot Wednesday evening, this particular one.. I didn't shoot it myself though. I still hope I will next time (12 days from now).

Looks like a copy of Mr. Quackenbush's fine work.

Well, it is likely a fine rifle, looking at the price tag, about $4,000 USD

Don't say that to fast, CW. With practice these rifles are actually pretty darn accurate BECAUSE it is muzzleloading. Exclamation Probably has a lot to do with the 26" barrel.

Anything made in the Netherlands is bound to be expensive though. But it's also of a very good quality, because it's always some kind of enthusiast who wants to do things right.

Groupings at 25 meters were alright, but this guy just bought one, so I think with a little more practice he just might do it. A rifle such as this also has a bit of recoil, I guess.

That doesn't look at all like a DAQ. The action looks different, and has only one bolt handle, plus the stock is a lot different then the DAQ's come with.

$4000? No thanks.

Shot one today. Worth every penny. Mr. Green Hits well and hard at 50 meters. Recoil is huge, but soft and slow. Exclamation
