    I had to have a Tennessee rifle when I saw Dixies back in the early ‘80s. They became pretty popular, and my name Tenngun was given since I went along with the flow, that my buds kinda laughed at.
    I built one but made lots of mistakes.
    I just reworked it. Added a entry pipe, nose cap, toe plate and patch box.
    Reworked the forestock from chunky to slim, reworked the check plate and slimed down the butt.
    It still has a German lock and butt profile still wrong, but I think it looks a bit better.
    Old photoed with fusil, new today, just got forth coat of oil.

    Nice gun. You worked it out well, I don't really see all the problems you mentioned. Enjoy the "new" gun!

    They’re very nice tenngun. I acquired a Dixie Tenn Mnt Rifle myself last summer. Gained a healthy respect and admiration for those Tennessee Rifle’s.

    Of course, yours are extremely nice!

    Enjoyed your pictures. Thanks for sharing my friend!:thumb:

    Respectfully, Cowboy

    Give him a break, he isn't a photographer, he is one of our frequent posters! I do have to admit, I would like to have a pair for my myself. (LOL)
    Kidding aside, Tenngun, thanks for sharing!
