The Lyman Great Plains Rifle

A Tradition of Excellence

Lyman Great Plains Rifle

The rifle carried across the Great Plains by western pioneers and fur trappers was the culmination of percussion firearms development. This "Great Plains" rifle was designed and built by such famous makers as Hawken, Gemmer and Demick to the specifications of experienced backwoodsmen. Only the best and most reliable designs and finest workmanship were acceptable. Today, as in the 1800's, the experienced black powder shooter is looking for a very special rifle.

No other factory assembled rifle or kit offers the authentic style and design of Lyman's Great Plains Rifle. This classic muzzleloader offers such high quality features as a 32" barrel with 1 in 60" twist for patched ball and hunting loads, double set triggers, Hawken style percussion "snail" with clean out screw, separate ramrod entry thimble and nose cap, and reliable coil spring lock with correct lock plate. Available in .50 and .54 caliber flint or percussion. Factory assembled or kit form.

Lyman Plains Pistol

Lyman Plains Pistol recreates the trapper's pistol of the mid-1800's while incorporating the best ofmodern steels and technology. It's the perfect companion to a Lyman black powder rifle. This percussion pistol is loaded with quality features. The richly stained walnut stock complements blackened iron furniture, polished brass trigger guard and ramrod tips. The hooked patent breech takes down quickly and easily for cleaning. Just like the originals, the thimble is recessed into the rib and a detachable belt hook provides an alternative to a holster. A spring-loaded trigger and fast 1 in 30" twist make it amazingly accurate.

Great Plains Hunter

This is a special version of our Great Plains rifle with the hunter in mind. Called the "Great Plains Hunter", this new model features a fast, 1 in 32" shallow groove rifle barrel. It's ideal for shooting the many types of modern projectiles available to today's black powder hunter, such as Lyman's own 'Shocker' series of bullets and sabots. The Great Plains Hunter has all of the high quality features of our Classic Great Plains rifle. It is also also pre-drilled and tapped for the new 57 GPR receiver sight for the Great 0Plains rifle.
