Here’s an unusual project, something I have been wanting to make for a long time: a HAWKEN style WENDER rollover percussion rifle-shotgun. Rifle barrel is 62 caliber and shotgun barrel is 12 gauge smoothbore. Gorgeous wood, late Bridger Hawken buttplate , scroll trigger guard, fancier Hawken toeplate and patchbox, and, (I hope) a DST. Back action percussion lock but Hawken patent breeches, two ramrods- one for rifle, the other for shotgun. This is what I imagine Sam might have made on custom order for an adventuresome client
Both barrels will be rifle sighted. You will be able to use the 12 gauge
for single ball, too. The 12 gauge will have interchangable chokes. It
should be a great hunting combination. AAAA maple, great wood!!
