Long Fowler
Circa 1790
7-feet, 2.5-inches overall
Ketland Lock...barrel marked London - SOLD

Long Fowler
Circa 1790, right facing

This long fowler with brass furniture and full stock is about 7 Gauge and has a 70.5-inch barrel; remarkable and outstanding overall length 7 feet 2.5-inches. In original flint with hook breech; forend has been replaced from rear rammer pipe forward. If you didn't know it, the repair would be very difficult to find. The barrel blew out on the bottom about 26-inches from the muzzle, probably taking the forend with it. There is a repair to that spot on the barrel. Brass trigger guard with extra-long tang and acorn forend; brass butt-plate with long stepped heel-tang. Surrounding the breech is a wide raised beavertail terminated by a second smaller beavertail finial. Brass furniture, wedge escutcheons and three screw sideplate...two screws securing the lock with the third assuring a tight fit to plateau. Although the lock will benefit from a good cleaning it is mechanically fine. Barrel is a nice brown; some vice clamp scars on the barrel obscuring proofs all else fine.
