Jim’s site says 1750s but in an email he stated 1790s. I’m deep into the research and agree. While kits are available for some appropriate guns, to do a Pennsy-made smoothbore c.1750 would basically be a build from a plank.Chambers Pennsylvania Fowler has been mentioned and could work well. It’s approximately 1770s I think. When one wants to get earlier than that, in a colonial smoothbore it takes some research and a kit may not be the ticket.
Yup! However… My in-laws are in Connecticut. Not sure if that sways me for or against a French Fusil.RyanAK the northeastern part of PA was settled by families from Connecticut, so French Fusils & New England Fowlers were probably used back then.
