Our Colonial American 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. One of the most unique and pleasing features of the American Fowler is the resulting overall architecture that occurs from the blending of the Germanic and English traditions of gun making. This cultural blending produces a hybrid fowling piece that is slender and graceful yet also exhibits the strong and sturdy construction of the Germanic gun making tradition. We are confident that you will enjoy the quality and visual appeal of our Colonial American Fowler, which has been the tradition of Pennsylvania German gunsmiths for over 200 years.
*Our Colonial American Fowler is no longer available in KIT form. However, through our custom shop we are able to build you a finished rifle that is personally taylored to your order.
