42 inch long 12 gauge Getz tapered octagon to round barrel, Lightly figured maple stock, great sparking,
quality French Fusil flintlock and brass French furniture, serpentine sideplate, sparse carving and light engraving. Metal finished a deep,
deep brown to enhance the stained and oil rubbed wood. Was sent to Track
of the Wolf, but UPS managed to break it through the wrist. I fixed it
with a lengthwise steel wrist pin and epoxy, added a silver turtle and
brass sheet repair in the antique style, added some brass tacks for that
authentic look. I put a screw-in Colonial choke in it and took it turkey hunting this Spring. Killed two big Toms with it.
The pics above were taken AFTER the fix on the gun, If you look close
you might be able to see the break through the wrist and the fix, using a
silver turtle and decorative tear-drop wrist plate on either side to disguise the break. The real fix of course is the 6″ steel pin epoxied inside the wrist. You could run over it with your Suburban now and not break it again.
