Those look very interesting. Maybe when nobody is looking, you could get close up photos of the individual pieces. Very nice !

I had the same question! One lefty in a nice collection of "properly fit" weapons. : )
I'll assume that reflects many, many years of research and collecting.

It’s a little .45 smoothrifle. I shoot left handed, as my right eye is no good. I shoot mostly right handed guns, but this one came up at a reasonable price, so I thought I’d try it. I find it a bit awkward, but love shooting it.

Well, I already asked about the doglock in the first pic. I took the Op's advise and contacted Loyalist Arms about the (3) Indian options. Those are all a month or more out. I have not made a decision, but; that photo did pique my interest. I do a lot more talking than buying. For those who missed that discussion: the OP's doglock is a custom build, while I asked about availability and options to me in USA.

Hi Maurice. Yes I had that Tennessee 32 cal, but someone wanted it badly, so I passed it forward. Traded it for the 1842 US percussion pistol. Turkish rifle barrel was made up by Paul and is now in the USA. I still have a couple of guns over there.
The trade gun is one of Paul’s. Hope you are well

Hi Cositrike

Great looking collection. A mix of both replicas and originals. And a nice mix of different types/styles. Appears you have the same disease I do. And there's no known cure. LOL I especially like the doglock musket also. And I second/third the motion for more pics and details of that one. I too am both a shooter and collector. That's probably why I don't shoot better than I do. Can't seem to stay with just one gun. My interests are too broad.
Again, great collection and variety.
Just so you won't feel lonely, here is a pic of my flint pistol collection. About 2/3 years old so there's been some new additions since then. Don't know how I would go about photos of all the long guns, percussion, and BPC guns. LOL

On the other hand, I wonder how many on this Forum own just one muzzle loader ? LOLDSC00569 (Medium).JPG

First time I've seen a pistol made out of a stick !! Impressive collection. . . As for the original post, as a LH shooter, I'd like to see close up pics of that LH rifle.

CosiTrike, if it is not too much of a bother, could you list which of your muzzle loaders are originals and which are modern replicas?

That is quite a collection, Rick. I think I am feeling a little envy.
