Daily Weekly updates page. I post new guns with links to pages here.

 All of the right hand English Fowler pattern guns can be built in a percussion version. Those include the regular fowler, the English Game gun with 30 inch barrel, and the Officer's fusil. It is built to look like a conversion from flintlock which would have been the process taken to convert to percussion. I machine a drum and build it so that there is a stop inside the threaded hole, so that it can be completely sealed, like a mini breech plug fitting job.

is it a Working Firearm or a piece of art?

We hope you will understand that Danny is blessed with many orders (most requiring special options: personalizing, inlays, engraving, etc.) which he must devote his time to, so there is no e-mail contact for him until an order is placed.  

However, he's a much faster talker than typist, so please feel free to call Danny during regular business hours (CST) @

870-423-4741 with your questions & discuss options for your semi-custom black powder firearm.

Orders may take up to 6 months before they ship, but you can search our "Available Now" page for gun(s*) that are partially

or fully finished and can ship earlier.  *(Gun options vary)
