This is a fascinating thread. Thank you for posting such thorough documentation of the process. I've never really found smooth-bore fowlers interesting. But as I've become more and more excited about SxS unmentionables, this flintlock double is increasingly fascinating. Not being a bird hunter (I pretty much only shoot clays), I'm not sure if a flintlock double is a good fit for me (speed of loading for a clays course or trap range might be an issue!), but it's really neat to read about. Thanks!
