This is a very nice English fowler by
Ed Perry. Most fowlers I get in are very plain. It is one of
the easiest styles for beginning builders. This one is
exceptional due to the details Ed has incorporated. The
quality and amount of engraving along with the wrist carving
adds many extra hours of work that generally is not fully
appreciated by someone who has not tried to build one of
these guns. Ed's many years of building shows in his wood to
metal fitting, classic styling and attention to details.
The stock on this gun is a piece of
walnut with nice grain and well executed wrist carving. The lock is a
Chamber's round faced with a more correct frizzen spring
replacement. The barrel is
a 42" long Rice oct-round in 20 gauge. The brass parts
have all been elegantly engraved. Overall it is very well made and the wood
to metal fit is excellent.
The rifle is unfired and in like new condition.
Overall a beautiful gun that holds and points very well. Should be a good shooter.
This is an exceptionally fine gun for the price.
Weight is 8 lbs. Pull is 14¼".
