    very happy to show of my Club Butt Fowler made by Roy Stroh. turned out EXACTLY like i oredred, a big, no nonsense meat and potatoes Fowler then can do it all! as many guns like this were found in my area i wanted to have one and hunt with it like so many from my area did years ago. sports a 46 inch Colerain barrel that i believe was intended for a Brown Bess but found its home with this beast. L&R lock throws a true "shower" of sparks. stock made from a really nice piece of Cherry and i love how it balances and comes to the shoulder. as bulky and heavy as a fowler like this looks and feels GREAT at the shoulder! 75 cal and i am casting round ball with a Jeff Tanner .765 brass mold which produces a 668 grain ball. shooting bare ball for deer and turkey loading with 100 grains FF, hornets nest, 2 ounces of #5 and topped with hornets nest. i have to say this is the FINEST trigger tuning and lock tuning i have saw on a fowler and a long time if not the BEST i ever shot. light trigger pull and lightning fast lock. i added a pic of a .54 rb next to the .75 i was so very close Sunday to killing a longbeard its not funny just a couple more steps....Can't wait to get some blood on this beauty and let it earn a name. for now my buddy Casey Capaz has aptly named it Fudd as he said i have never saw a gun like that other then in Loony Tunes! name fits and i resemble Elmer....

    Very, very nice. Thanks for sharing.
    You say heavy but well balanced. What does it weigh?

    Wow, that is a hefty girl. I'm sure she shoulders well, but, how does she carry? I'm assuming most of the weight is in that butt, does this change your carry method if covering a lot of terrain?

    believe it or not it carrys pretty easy, it balances very well that club butt off sets the heavy barrel.
