a very correct kit patterned off the original gun. While
working in the Colonial Williamsburg Gunshop, I had the
chance to disassemble and measure the original Bumford gun.
Ryan Gale's book "For Trade And Treaty" has excellent
pictures and measurements of this gun. I strongly suggest it
as a reference when assembling and engraving your kit.
The barrels are patterned from
the original gun and made by Rice Barrel Co. The unique guard, wrist plate
and buttplate were traced from the original. The sideplate
was shortened slightly to fit the Davis lock. The stocks are
beech or hard maple depending on availability. All parts needed to complete
the assembly are included.
Suggested load is a .562 ball and
.015 patch over 80 grains of FFG black powder.
NO other bore sizes,
stock woods or left hand versions are available so please don't ask.
