Maker of black powder flintlock and percussion cap muzzleloading Kentucky longrifles, pistols, muskets, powder horns, and fowlers.
For over 30 years, I have honed the skills necessary to create handcrafted copies of long arms originally created in 1740-1840 by master Pennsylvania gunsmiths, such as J.P Beck, John Bonewitz, Adam Ernest, Frederick Sell, and others. I have also made meticulously accurate replicas of guns by noted Connecticut gunsmiths Benoi and Medad Hills.
Only the highest quality American parts and the finest woods are used to create my award-winning muzzleloaders. The marriage of these metals and woods with master craftsmanship and painstaking attention to historical detail and accuracy results in a functional, living piece of history.
Accurate and reliable in the field and a joy to behold mounted over your fireplace, my guns are of heirloom quality that can only increase in value and authentic luster, as the piece is passed down from generation to generation.
