Beautiful collection Dave!
Those are all "Would love to have one like that someday" guns. Detail, lines, architecture, wood and finish make an awesome collection. :thumb:

I always enjoy seeing your artistry Dave. You have tremendous talent. I have to wonder how many hours at the bench those five of your examples represent!

You are right up there with the best of the best of the 18th century masters. Bravo!

Hi,
The collection of 18th century British-style guns that I made currently at my home.

Superb craftsmanship Dave 👍
I also favor English & European firearms, my artistic skills were limited so was fortunate enough to locate originals to shoot.

Having seen some of these in hand, they would fit right into a collection of original English fowling pieces. Now if Dave had a sizable estate, we could have quite a hunt posing as rabble running amok!

Hi and thanks guys,
The added pleasure is they all shoot really well. I have not taken the 2 newest out on any woods walks yet but the other 3 have performed nicely. The fowler with the long blued barrel is my current "go to" gun for shoots. I have a feeling the rifled officer's fusil on the end next to it is going to give it a real run for the money. For 3 of the guns, if I miss my target, I can always stab it with the fitted bayonet! Thanks for looking.
