Beautifully crafted Smooth Bore Fowler in 28ga.

Beautifully crafted smooth bore Fowler in 28 ga. The Barrels are 44" in Length, octagon shaped at the Breech transitioning to a round taper providing smooth handling and balance.

Early style checkering in the wrist with carvings in the tang and rear entry thimble area. The front spider sight is cast from silver and inlaid into the barrel. A typical load for this rifle would have consisted of 55 grains of FFg black powder and a .540 diameter round ball wrapped in a .015 thick piece of linen cloth. Another load that was used during the revolutionary and civil war era was what was referred to as a Buck and Ball load consisting of a full caliber round ball combined with Three buckshot pellets. This was designed to improve the probability of a hit @ close range.
