    Call The Rifle Shoppe and order one ONLY if they have it in stock and get that confirmed.

    I bought their 62-cal version of the Tannenberg hand gonne found at the end of the 14th century and it is a fantastic item. I also received it from them in only 4-days from ordering!

    flint62 smoothie I have a .62 caliber handgonne I bought from Freekforge a few years ago I stocked it in ash and stained it dark. The barrel is 11"x 1 1/2" heavy and brown the tiller is about 45" overall length is about 56" Ill take $200 shipped. I cant take a picture but if you look on the forum under pre flintlock, page 7, Freekforge under 'New Handgonne' you can see pictures and a short video. If you don't want the tiller I'll take $165 shipped for the barrel. Postal M.O. Thanks, George.

    I found Freekforge unresponsive with delays that lasted for weeks then I tried to order a handgonne from him. I’d recommend another builder.

    Mason I have a gonne built by Freekforge that is .62 caliber and is heavy built. I'll take $165 shipped. I would prefer a postal M.O. It can be seen in a video on page 7 of pre-flintlock on Freek's thread 'A new handgonne' You can reply here if you like.

    No, I like and use postal money orders. That way both parties are covered. I will wait for your MO and send your gonne. Thanks, George.

    Sadly, virtually nobody makes handgonnes for sale in this country. Freekforge was the only one I knew about. People just are not into these like they are with some black powder guns.

    I'm closing this topic. It looks to me like Mason got what he's after.

    Actually, it should never have been posted here. This sort of thing should have been posted in the Classified section.
    Posting wanted and for sale topics in the general areas of the forum is against the forum rules.
