Flintlock is finished
« on: April 13, 2023, 11:09:35 AM »
Gentlemen, my new turkey swatter is finished. Huge thank you to Ken Moors who built this for me. English styled fowling piece. Walnut plank and a Colerain 42" turkey choke 20ga .580" choke barrel. Hope to do some patterning work in the next couple weeks. A functional piece of art.

Beautiful gun. Good luck with it.
I had to use a muzzleloader shotgun in Iowa back several years ago and I finally killed one with it. Definitely not my favorite firearm.

I have friends with this barrel that are helping me out with load data. Next weekend I'll start shooting it.

Very nice looking gun. I trust that she will become a part of you when you start shooting her. Maybe start carving notches in the stock?   :TooFunny:

Cheers  ;D

Beautiful gun, can’t wait to see a bird that you get with it.

That’s going old school
