This was my first purchase from Hinterland.
The purchase went very well, super fast shipping and the price was lower than anyone else.
Ordered 11/14/17, shipped same day. Arrived 11/17/17.
As far as the rifle goes, it was not what I expected of Lyman quality.
I ordered the Lyman GPR in 50 cal. Percussion rifle.
First the bad:
Overall fit of metal to wood looks like it was a kit that was not finished.
The wood is very proud of the metal on everything but the Butt plate.
Also inside the stock were the nut sets for the tang screw to attach has a crack in the wood.
Very light stain was applied for a finish.
Tight fit to get the barrel in the barrel channel of the stock.
Now the good:
The barrel is Awesome, great bluing and the bore is the smoothest I have seen on any rifle.
The lands are sharp so it does need lapped to smooth the sharpness, not a bit deal.
All the metal has a great finish.
Already contacted Lyman and they said they would send me an RA # to return the stock.
still waiting for the RA# though.
Giving 3 Stars:
5 Stars for Hinterland
2 stars for the rifle.
Will update pending the outcome with Lyman.

I have been looking for a Great Plains rifle for some time, and this was the best price I could find. Took one week to get it, but it was worth it. It arrived in excellent shape. Dealing with Hinterland was straight forward and very easy. Looking forward to shooting it!!!
