    FOR SALE Unique Plains Style Percussion Rifle

I have no idea who built it but they were an exceptional craftsman as the inletting is exceptionally precise and the finish is professional both wood and metal. The only identifying marks are what appear to be English proofs on the...

    Queen Anne pistol in 50 cal

    From experience you will need to open the touch hole to 5/64 and deepen the pan.(dremel works good). The frizzen spring will work but is tough on flints as is and should be lightened. The "Becky" size flints from Track and a thin flint leather with a notch in back turn the lock into a good...

    Here is something that you will not frequently come across. This set of "Peanut" size Deringers .41cal. were made for the U.S. Historical Society by Aldo Uberti in the early 1980's and have Uberti's markings and Italian proofs on the underside of the barrels. Those who, like me, have a few...

    SOLD Richland Arms .50cal Wesson Rifle

    Here is a really nice Richland Arms .50 cal Wesson rifle. This rifle has the color case hardened steel frame not to be confused with the Replica arms model that had a painted Zamack frame.

    E.R. Ansbach

    Ed Ansbach was a good friend of mine taught me a lot about building muzzle loaders. He lived in Ada Ohio and passed away just a few years ago. He was an early member of the Ftm McArthur longrifles. He was a machinist by trade and a gunsmith by avocation. Started building in the late 1960's and...

    Front sight soldering
