Jud Brennan Rifle

Words can not describe the quality and the beauty of this rifle. and pictures do not do it justice. For those of you who collect flintlocks when I say the name Jud Brennan that"s all I really need to say. For those just starting or thinking about collecting flintlocks, there are thousands of builders out there offering prices of a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands. Jud Brennan may be the finest builder in the world. If he is not he would be in the top select few. To have him build a rifle equal to the quality and workmanship of this fine piece would take many months, perhaps years and lots of bucks. I do not profess to knowing Mr. Brennan's production schedule or his price points. I do know he is well known in the art of building fine flintlocks. Please note the beautiful octagon barrel, rifle is dressed with lots of silver and brass highly engraved This rifle is featured here ://contemporarymakers.blogspot/2012/12/jud-brennan-rifle.html here you can see about 20 additional pictures as well as some additional written information. No waiting here, lets get together and I will ship it to you immediately.

Andrew Dolep Lock Castings Sets

Castings of an original lock by Andrew Dolep. Classic form from around 1690-1700. 5.125" long. Would work well for a pistol or small fowling piece. Andrew Dolep was a very prolific and well known English gunsmith during the late 17th and early 18th centuries. A very beautiful and stylish 17th century flintlock. Great care was taken in preparing the parts before making the molds. All holes are plugged and material was added to any places that needed it. The lock was in very good condition and allowed for nice castings to be created from it. Metals used: 1095 for the frizzen, 5160 for the springs, O1 for the tumbler, sear and 8620 for the remaining parts. No screws will be included. To purchase visit: or contact Jim at
