    The Rifle Shoppe

    The 'series 509' references TRS's parts for that particular rifle. All of their part sets have a series #. This rifle is a very, very involved build. Thanks for the feedback, please keep me posted. I have pics of them both somewhere around here so I'll see if I can find them and put them...

    The Rifle Shoppe

    I'd be curious to know what it is. I built two British light inf. rifles years ago for re-enacting friends here in the north east. They were 1776 British Rifles, series 509. Thanks.

    PIKER'S ! I've got my first 'attempt' from 1967 still. Probably last fired in the early 70's. AND. I still have the 1967 Dixie Gunworks Cat. from then, #117 that I bought the parts from. It's a .32 flint with Douglas bbl. and Russ Hamm lock. A short time back there was a thread here about...

    No Such Rifle !

    I want to sincerely thank all you guys who've liked and posted such nice comments. Sincerely. When I put my creature up here I just thought it'd be fun as something 'off the wall' for everybody, and I guess that part worked out. I'm pleased as punch that so many of you got some entertainment...

    No Such Rifle !

    Pietro said the same thing a couple of days ago. I told him It was shipped and he should go stand in the driveway to meet the del. truck so he didn't miss it. That was two days ago. 'Haven't heard from him since. 'Hope it's not raining where he lives. :)

    No Such Rifle !

    Thanks, one thing about one off/oddball guns like this is that while they may not be the prettiest girl in the room, they do catch and hold attention for a little bit. Plus, if you're the builder, you don't have to work at re-inventing someone else's wheel. :cool:

    'Shipped it out this AM. Like I said, it came out too dark and I don't like it. Go stand in the driveway so you don't miss the del. truck. 'Should be there any minute! :cool:

    NB, that t/guard come from Mike Brooks, also TRS has the one I did yrs. ago, series 672 TG1. Mike's is sand cast, TRS's is wax cast. Note: I changed the finials on mine so don't let that throw you if you're checking into Mikes and mine looks different.

    No Such Rifle !

    'Neglected to mention that in the pics of the bottom of the rifle that piece of 'driftwood' is actually a hunk of old rotten pier from the Hudson. To it's left almost out of the one pic is a brick from Bannerman's Island Arsenal that sits in Newburgh bay. My hometown. Like I said, we have no...

    No Such Rifle !

    Yes Gents, there is no historical basis whatever for this flight of fancy, so, 'tongue in cheek' is the approach we'll be using. OK ? It's a rifle made here in the Hudson River Valley, 3rd or 4th qtr. 18c. A customer walks into an old Dutch gun builders shop with a rifle bbl. and wants a gun...

    M.I.A.

    Thanks, I did find it by doing as you guy's said by going back into my own 'posts'. 'Problem is, if doing a search on HVF's on the builders bench it doesn't show and isn't of any help to anyone as such, which was the original intent of the thread. Using just a Hudson Valley Fowler search I...
