This fowler has an octagon-to-round smoothbore barrel with a squared-off tang. The lock has been reconverted to its original flintlock configuration. Trigger guard has the usual screw in the rear instead of pins and is rounded on the end facing the muzzle in Bucks County style, as is the tip of the ferrule facing the trigger guard. It has early rounded brass ramrod ferrules. There is rococo carving around the tang and some incised carving on the wrist at the comb. There is also incised carving behind the cheek piece that includes several "C" scrolls. The cheek piece is carved along its bottom border with some small, rounded, repetitive shapes. Modern ramrod. CONDITION: The curly maple stock has been ended out approximately 20" towards the muzzle on both sides. The nose cap is a replacement. The sideplate appears to be a modern replacement, as are the two round ramrod ferrules. DRG
