This page comprises a listing of the traditional rifles and smoothbores that Doc is working on for his own entertainment and eventually for sale. He does it while waiting for the phone to ring when he’s on call. Some are pretty plain, some are fancy, most will have been fired at least enough to proof them, make sure the gun functions properly and the sights are reasonably close. Many times this is done at a match. Doc rarely takes the same gun to a match, prefers a new one every time, it makes the ordeal more challenging. Most of the guns illustrated are new, some are fix-up antiques and used trade-ins, inevitably some will be beaters, but all will be identified and thoroughly described.
When the gun is finally done, it will be deleted from this page and transferred to the ‘On Sale’ page. All are ON SALE at any time, whether as a rough kit, assembled in the white, carved, engraved , decorated, or beat to pieces, whether in the On Sale page or on this page. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for the price. POR Feel free to make an offer. Dickering can be fun.
Once the gun is sold, the photo workup will be transferred to the ‘ Archives ‘ page. You can find a wide assortment of guns there, most everything that Doc has invented, collected or hand made over the last 30 plus years. It’s a great read, with good photos and text.
Doc’s custom guns are often shown on the Track of the Wolf webpage, amongst the many fabulous offerings that TOW displays. Their photos are truly great, with hard to see detail plainly shown. Go to trackofthewolf.com, click on ‘guns’, then the category of gun you want to see, ie- flintlock, then scroll down the pages to find one of Doc’s offerings. There are usually 1 or 2 there.
