This might be a little off subject but start going to garage sales and estate sales and be creative when talking to the proprietor. Last mo. I went to a garage sale about 10 miles from my hse. and noticed that there were a few hunting items for sale, nothing related to muzzleloading but the guy asked what I was looking for(that opened the door) I said I was looking for anything to do with muzzle loaders. He said he did have some stuff but his wife wouldn't let him sell it in the yard sale. I said it's perfectly legal and he had me follow him up to the hse. Long story short, we went down in the bsmt to his gun stuff and he pulled out an old TC Hawken with a brand new Nikon scope and then grabbed an old bucket and started filling it with bullets, flask, caps, jags, two brand new packs of Pdex pellets. He said I'll sell it to you if you promise not to hunt deer with it because several people had tried and couldn't hit nothing with it. I said how much for everything, he said hows twenty dollars sound, I said sold! I took the funky scope mount off and made a rear sight with it because the original was misplaced, took it to my range the next day and it shoots as good with rb and PA ballets as any of my BP rifles! Start checking out those sales this isn't the first one I've found this way. People don't think they can sell stuff like firearms at garage sales. A month before this I picked up an Invest Arms Hawken in mint condition for sixty bucks, again the guy didn't have it out. Good luck!
