My Fusil
« on: March 20, 2015, 09:49:08 PM »
feel like a babe in the woods with these fancy science fiction revolving guns so I figure I'd show off my pride and joy.  a replica of 1740's french trade gun.   

had her now for almost two years and she handles like a dream
.62 cal, and takes a .60 round ball over top of about 100 gr 2f.

No Rifling, she's a smoothbore.
really more of a fowler than anything.

After my abysmal efforts during last hunting season I decided to name her "Miss Deer"  ::)

It was about a 17 month waiting list If I recall.  I originally asked for a 48" barrel, but that would've pushed the time back even further so I compromised with the 46".
and as for Mike's Work, total quality.  can't say enough good things about him and his work.   (T^

Why do you call it "Miss Deer" for?
because "Kill Deer" was already taken I opted to keep the theme going but add bit more truth in labeling. "Yes Deer" was my second choice M__
