Lyman Great Plains Reviews

"This Muzzleloader is absolutely worth every penny. I just started muzzleloading last fall, and struggled with three Thompson Center Hawkins muzzleloaders. I finally had enough and ordered this gun. It is without a doubt one of the best purchases I have made...I harvested a trophy class pronghorn with it this fall. He was 85 yards away, and this gun performed magnificently. One shot did the job. I like this firearm so well that I am purchasing one for my brother for Christmas. So impressed by the quality of this muzzleloader.”

"The Lyman Great Plains rifle is an attractive traditional muzzleloader that is rugged and well built for years of shooting and hunting.”
