This is one of our Colonial American Fowler kits built by Jack Cook. Our Colonial Fowler is a Lancaster county Pennsylvania Style fowling piece from the 1760-1780 period. It is based largely on a surviving example believed to have been made by John Newcomer in Hempfield Twp, Lancaster County. This one is stocked in a beautiful piece of Curly Maple that exhibits a deep rich color. The brass mounts have been hand polished and the side plate, butt plate and trigger guard have all been pleasantly hand engraved. The barrel is a 42″ long octagon to round Colerain barrel in 20 ga. / 62 cal. The lock is a Large Siler that has been hand tuned here at the shop for a fast and reliable ignition. The trigger pull is crisp and light and falls right in at 13 5/8″ long. Jack built this rifle for himself but it still retains its “Like New” luster and shows zero signs of every being used.
