5-1-2008 NEW PRODUCT!
We are also trying to address a problem/solution which we
have encountered through the years. People love to hang antique and new-made
guns over fireplaces as decorator items. The problem with this is that the guns
will be damaged from the dry and hot atmosphere. Our solution, to keep from
ruining real firearms, is to produce flintlock replicas which are totally made
from wood. The only non-wood components will be a steel hammer and frizzen.
These replicas will be stained and painted to give the viewer the effect of a
real gun but without the cost ( and possible damage) of a real gun. These can be
used over fireplaces, on fireplace mantels, in shadow boxes, as door or wall
appliqués or any other application where a gun would add just the right
atmosphere. We will be finishing a model for photos and get them posted
a.s.a.p. These will be suitable for museums and historical displays with great
accuracy in detail and authenticity. And of course, the price will be
considerably less than real firearm.
I just got the prototype/first replica built yesterday and
it looks fantastic. From 10 feet away, it looks like the real thing. I have
stained the wood our standard stain color and the lock, butt plate, barrel,
trigger and trigger guard an ebony black color. These are going to be
collector's items because of their quality and uniqueness. Call for details and price. Awesome piece of
artwork...it will look great on any wall or fireplace!
A really nice and safe alternative to a real firearm
for home or office decoration. Bring the 18th century to any setting by
placing this in your location of choice. No firearms restrictions, no
insurance hassles, thieves won't have any interest in taking it and you can
buy a replica while you save up for a real gun. Your wife won't notice the
switcheroo and everybody is happy. Weighs only 2 pounds and comes
with mounting screws or brass hanging hooks with screws. We have left mounting
block areas on the back of the replica which are not visible, but let you
mount this securely to any wall or door surface.
You won't believe the realism of this piece
which is fabricated from wood!
