This is the only place to get an English style trade gun kit.
These kits are made one at a time. All of
the brass parts are cut and filed by hand for the English kits. The barrels come with the breech plug
installed, dovetails cut for the sights and tennons (unless otherwise noted) and have the correct period
stamps consisting of 'LONDON' on the top flat and the View and Proof stamps on
the breech. The stocks are shaped from just forward of the lock back to the
butt. They are inlet for the barrel, lock, sideplate, buttplate and trigger.
Pull is about 13½".
These kits can be finished with minimal
work compared to many other kits. They can be stained and a
finish applied or painted and decorated as many of the
These are custom made kits
and I try to keep a few on hand but I may be out of stock at
times so please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery.
Please note that the brass parts
are not engraved on the kits.
Available in 20,
or 28 gauge smoothbore.
36" or 42".
For paint and finishing supplies
Due to Covid closings last year, gun parts
makers are busy trying to catch up with the demand again. From what I
understand, steel mills and raw material suppliers are behind in orders

barrel makers and casting mills running behind. All of the barrel makers
are 6 months to a year or more out on delivery of barrels. I have
barrels on backorder but don't have a definite timeline on when to
expect any or how many.
If you are interested in a kit, you can
place an order and I will ship as I get barrels or call/email on
