Dixie Tennessee Poor Boy Left Hand Flintlock
« on: February 16, 2012, 12:08:30 PM »

Hello, I just joined up and am curious, I didn't see a Tenn Poor Boy in the latest Dixie catalog. Does anyone know if the manufacturer went out of business, or it wasn't popular? or what. Mine was special ordered in Left hand. It's a 50 and shoots very well with 70 gr of 3F. My wife got it for me back in 1985 or '86. Is there anyone that has any info on it? possible current value?
I also have a T/C Hawken 50, perc. it also shoots great, 'tho right handed and I' a lefty. (h*

I don't know about Dixie but Mirku of Japan is the Mfg. I have one Left hand percussion that I made a 32 1/2" of and has a repaired cracked stock....50cal one of the best shooters I've had...
Maybe you can Google it and find one...

It's Miroku, part of Browning International. That's all I know about it.

I see this thread is over a year old, but you did ask. I had a left hand Dixie Poor Boy, got it around '82. It shot very nicely; I was always gonna trim the fore end down but never got to it. I sold it a while back (BAD move!) for $600.00  :(

Miroku has made some fine muzzleloaders in the past. I don't know if they are making any now. Their replica '61 Springfields was almost a perfect clone of the originals made at Springfield Armory.

My latest Dixie catalog is about 8 years old and I noticed they didn't have any parts for the Poor Boy even then, and only had a couple guns left.
