I have completed the Pecatonica Tennessee Classic Flintlock LR. It sports some pretty Curly Maple, an A weight swamped .50 Colerain barrel and a Late Ketland lock. It balances and comes up to sight extremely well, and wow it is fast! I put about 60 hours work into this, and think it was time well spent. It will be going up to Pennsylvania in a few days.

Oh my Goodness!! What a stunning rifle. This is a good example of less is more. Great job and you seem to have a gift for beautiful finishing and color selection. This is my new favorite rifle! ................Labrat

That is a really nice piece of wood, and the color makes it pop. If that is a Jim Chambers late Ketland you have, they are fast...

The customer asked them for the best of Curly Maple and I think ergot it- yes the lock is a Chambers Late Ketland though it has a mid-aligned Main Spring that will be corrected. It’s fast as lightning even so.

Wow, very nice gun, you've got a talent for this. Your .36 looks great also!
I just now saw your video, boy is that a fast lock time!
