What's In Your Bag, Brian Barker?

Here is an outfit I am sending to a customer. I made him a rifle earlier this year and he ask me to make a pouch and horn set for him. I sent some photo's of horns and bags that I had made along with a photo of my personal outfit. Well as usual he wanted my horn and bag. I had already sold most of my stuff off so I had to make some new things to put in and make it complete. Now I wonder how long it will take me to get another set made. Copy and photos supplied by Brian Barker.

The Golden Rifle: Part 2


Early Virginia Rifle by Lowell Haarer

This .50 caliber Early Virginia rifle has a Rice 42 inch swamped barrel and a Chamber Deluxe Siler lock. The Virginia style buttplate and triggerguard are castings, but the patchbox, toeplate, sideplate and rod pipes are all handmade. The pewter muzzlecap was formed in place. The metal engraving was done by hand with hammer and graver. The silver wire sets off the forearm with a nice touch. The silver wire cross sets off the pierced heart in the patchbox and also makes a statement of faith…
