    I once owned a 54 caliber Scout handgun. I shot it and had a 2 X Burris Scope mounted on the frame.

    In all honest, I didn't like the gun and eventually ended up selling it. I may offend some people but I will state what problems I had with it.

    1. It was very hard to find a good , accurate hunting load. I wanted to use it to hunt game like deer and black bear. I spent some time at the range and I was never really happy with the accuracy. Plain Maxi balls shot horribly. The only load that shot worth anything was a pistol bullet in the now discontinued Break O way Sabots.

    2. It was a tad heavy. I found it to fit my hand well but it was heavy compared to other guns. I know I shot some heavy loads and the weight is appreciated, but still, I found it too heavy for my tastes.

    3. The design of the gun didn't lend itself well to cleaning. The gun had three basic parts. The barrel , which screwed into the frame. The reciever, which held the grip and barrel together and the grip with the trigger and hammer. There were a lot of nooks and crannies that would hold fouling and it seemed like more of a pain to clean it.

    4. The nipple seemed to get clogged up a lot. The nipple was a large and rather long. I suspect that added to the lock time. The nipple arriangement was nice in that you could look down the nipple and ascertain whether the gun was loaded, nipple blocked after shooting, etc. But I always worried about it clogging up. Which it did.

    5. Scope mounting was on the reciever. Each time you wanted to clean the gun, it seemed as if you had to resight the gun. The barrel was partially enshrouded with the reciever. I did notice POI changes when disassembled.

    The Scout Rifle and Pistol weren't great sellers at TC and when they had the big fire a while back, the part of the factory that made the Scout went up in smoke. The powers that be decided not to revive the gun.

    Now. With the advent of H777 the gun may be different. If I owned one I would probably try that powder and use some of the new magnum sabots and see what happens.

    I may have posted this tidbit before but I now shoot a M82 Kahnke pistol. It shoots very well and is designed to have interchangeable barrels. Also, the gun can be bought in stainless or blue. I chose stainless and the barrel can be taken out of the frame. I can unscrew the breech plug and run a bore snake through. One pass and it is clean as a whistle. Also no POI changes as well.

    Generally, if a gun shoots too low, you have to either raise your rear sight or lower your front sight.
    Folks usually file down their front sight very carefully while at the range so they don't take too much metal off that they can't put back.
    Or, you have to either adjust your rear sight up if adjustable, or replace it with a higher rear sight.
    Or, mount a scope on the pistol and adjust it that way.

    been in love with mine

    got a .54 when they first came out, mine likes 90 grns ffg black powder, 320 grn lee real bullet crisco lube, commonly get 4" groups at 100 yds, might try shimming since barrel sight and rear leaf are on different parts of gun, though never had that problem with mine, gotta watch how you hold that cannon, brused the palm of my left hand and right middle finger till I learned how to hold it.
