Colonial Fowler

Offered for sale is a 1780's Colonial American Fowler. Stocked in American walnut and built in the manner of a Twigg fowler with moderate adornment, it is meant to represent a finer piece that would have most likely been owned by a person of some means. The Fowler is 59 5/8" long overall, and utilizes a 44" Colerain 20ga barrel, finished armory bright. The length of pull is 13 1/2". The lock is a Peter Allan round faced lock, with brass lock plate. The piece is decorated with a traditional English style shell carving behind the tang. Wide checkering adorns the wrist, with alternating star impressions and sterling silver, round wire inlays. The barrel tang is engraved, as is the top flat of the barrel over the breach. The brass lock plate is engraved, along with the steel cock. The comb of the brass butt piece is engraved, and the trigger guard and side plate are also adorned with engraving. A "C" and "S" scroll design decorates the heel of the stock on both sides, executed by utilizing sterling silver wire inlay. This fowler is in never fired, new condition. Additional photos of this fowler can be seen on my web site, in the "gallery" section, under "fowler". Additional photos are also available. This piece is being offered at $3,750.00, and I will pay all shipping within CONUS. Alternate email is:

Mike Brooks Fowler

Here's a Mike Brooks fowler made last year. It has a 47 3/8" Hoyt barrel, 20 ga, LOP 13 1/2", a beautiful piece of curly maple for a stock, and Mike's perfect lines and balance. This is the best flintlock I have ever owned. There is no buttplate or sideplate, and no entry thimble. This helps keep it light, just under six pounds. Instant ignition and very accurate at 50 yards with ball. More pictures of this gun are still available on Mike's website. SOLD, Thank You.

Christian Springs Rifle by K. Moors in .58 cal.

Another fine rifle by Ken Moors of Edenton, N.C. Ken likes the early Christian Springs style guns and he did a fine job with this one as usual. The lock is a Chambers Deluxe Siler Gunmakers lock and Ken custom shaped the plate. The barrel is a "D" weight 37" long Colerain in .58 caliber. The stock is a highly figured piece of maple with aged brass hardware. The rifle is raised carved with silver wire accents behind the cheek. The brass parts exhibit the fine engraving that Ken is known for. The fit, finish and aging on this rifle are all excellent. The pictures can tell more than I can as to how fine a gun this is. This rifle started out as one of my kits and Ken did a fine job of adding his own touches to make it a little different. This rifle holds and balances very well. I have sold several of Ken's guns in the past and the new owners have been very pleased with the quality of the work and the accuracy. Weight is 8 lbs. 6 oz. Pull is 13 5/8".
