    Trade rifle book

    There is a hard to find book called Proceedings of the 1984 trade gun conference. It's a bunch of study topics in magazine form. Several pages of English pattern trade rifles. Also some info on J.Henry rifles.

    Does anyone have information about the Village Restorations replica of the 1792 Contract rifle?

    I think Jim Klein also built a few of these commemorative guns.

    looking to identified this old musket

    Can't quite read the name. Can you spell it out for us? Also it's a side by side double shotgun by the looks of things. More photos would be helpful.

    A wild weekend

    The hammer damage is from over travel caused by the eroded away nipple. The two common cap sizes are the rifle size, usually #11, and musket size. This Fowler would not normally use musket caps.

    Early French Trading Posts, etc.

    That's a fascinating period of history. I lived for awhile in Bourbonnais Illinois- there are still a lot of old French names there. Now I live in Michigan and several sites here also.

    What kind of stuff do you all read?

    Elmer's book is a must read for anyone even remotely connected with firearms. Also a window into early 20th century life.

    Tommy Haas is a name that I have not heard in a long time. Met him once about forty years ago. No ideas on your Colt.
