American Style Fowler

with 43" barrel in 12 gauge

 

 

 

This is a very well made fowler made from a Jim Chamber's New England Colonial Fowler kit.

This gun has been used so it has natural patina already applied. The stock is a nice piece of walnut with a hand rubbed finish. There are several small dings and rubs from use but no cracks or serious dents. The barrel is by Getz and is 43" long in 12 gauge. The bore is excellent. (I honed the bore lightly to freshen it.) Bore measures .725 at the muzzle. It is not choked but there is a touch hole liner installed. The lock is Chamber's Early Virginia style and sparks very well. The hardware is brass. The inlets are tight but there are a couple of tiny gaps at the rear of the lock mortise from taking the lock in and out for cleaning and there is a small chip out at the rear of the tang.

Overall a well made, solid gun for hunting or re-enacting.

Weight 8 lbs. Pull is 14"
