During the past 60 years the interest in building muzzleloading firearms, accoutrements and related objects has grown substantially. The Contemporary Longrifle Association was organized as an association of contemporary muzzleloading firearms builders, collectors and people with related historical interests. The CLA recognizes the scope of the organization to include traditional muzzleloading rifles, pistols, fowlers, their accoutrements and related objects handmade after the mid-twentieth century.
