Oh man! Look at the wood on that thing. :shock:

Looks like it needs a fence to rest the front on, though. Beautiful.

"Holy ****" just seems to fall a bit short
A slack jawed, wide eyed, silent stare seems to work though
Some thing that I would mention to some that had not thought of it, or had much to do with wood working, that is a single piece of very nice wood. A piece that large, with figuring that good, does not come cheap. I would dare guess there was enough wood in the blank to make two stocks for a modern rifle.

Guess a brief discription of the gun is in order... ;)

This fine Maryland style longrifle was hand made by Mr. Don King circa 1981, and is signed on the top flat of the barrel. A skilled gun maker, who has replicated a number of original schools of style, this is a fine example of a contemporary longrifle.

This classic fullstock flint rifle is made in the style of the Emmitsburg, Maryland gunmakers, such as John Armstrong. Not a copy of a specific original, this rifle contains features to make a unique rifle in that school of gunmaking. Stocked in fancy curly maple, stained with Aquafortis, the figure has wonderful contrasting stripes from muzzle to butt. This rifle is in near new condition, and the frizzen shows few marks from use

The fine 42" straight octagon rifle barrel is retained by four polished steel headless wedge keys. Each key has a fine silver escutcheon plate surrounding it. Trigger reach is 13", to fit todays average shooter. This rifle weighs 8.4 pounds.

The 42" length, .45 caliber cut rifled barrel is 7/8" straight octagon. Cut rifled with eight lands and grooves in a slow twist for patched round ball. The muzzle is finished with a conventional crown for easy loading. The muzzle of the barrel is finished bright and engraved with a decorative design.

The Aquafortis finished stock is golden brown with dark stripes of figure, a hand rubbed oil finish gives the rifle a satin sheen. Decorated with raised and incised carving, and hand engraved brass hardware...

Raised carving creates a cameo wrist on this attractive longrifle. Raised and incised carving decorates the tang. A incised molding runs from the trigger to the toe, giving this slender longrifle an even more sleek appearance. A raised molding runs from the muzzle to the ramrod entry pipe.

Does Traditions make that in a carbine-length version?

Does Winchester sell ammo for that at Wal-Mart?

Is there a fancy version available? I have plenty of money.

I don't like wood. Can I get one with a fiberglass stock?

Who did that laser engraving? I have a Weatherby with expensive laser engraving.

Black powder stinks. How much Bullseye can I load one up with to duplicate factory ballistics?

Is that an old gun? New ones are better, aren't they?

I'm cheap. Does he make one in .22LR?

Is that thing better than an AR-15 or a Glock? I have an AR-15 AND a Glock and the guy behind the counter said that they are the BEST.

How come you don't have a scope on it? I have a gun with a scope on it.

Does the bullet hit hard?

My uncle has one just exactly like that hanging above the fireplace. It is a 16 gauge and I used to go rabbit hunting with it, but shells are too hard to find nowadays.

please add your own questions. :D

Can I buy armor piercing rounds for it on the internet?
How do you mount the silencer?
Can you add a rubber shoulder pad?
What's that thing on the side that looks kinda like a hammer?
Can the trigger be adjusted to 2 oz?
How many bullets does the clip hold?
Think my wife will like it?
What's that funny smell when you shoot it? :mrgreen:

Hell, no need to feel any shame....we were all polite when we saw Drew's meager guns!!! :mrgreen:

Actually it runs the gamut, mostly shooter grade stuff and a few guns to show-off. George definitely got my and Revorgs' attention. The three of us were shootin' the frontstuffers together, early in the day. Revorgs pal reworked his Flintlock into something wonderful. Wish I had pics of his gun....

Here's mine from that day...

Mine is just a shooter... an older Pedersoli .45 flinter that my Buddy Alan preformed his magic on.

It shoot real nice, it's a shame I've never taken any pictures of it.
