#779- Broadbutt 10 bore Doglock Colonial Fowler

The adventure of a Broadbutt 10 bore Doglock Colonial Fowler. This is a truly simple gun. There are only seven parts: a Broadbutt stock without buttplate, a sheet iron trigger guard and simple pinned trigger, two sheet iron ferrules, a barrel and a lock. And the lock is simplicity itself. Any colonial blacksmith could build one using a hammer and a file and many probably did.

The original colonial fowler is illustrated in “Flintlock Fowlers”. It shows a trigger guard that looks like it was made from an old gate handle. This one was indeed made from a gate handle, only brand new and never used.
