Hudson River Valley Curly Maple Fowler,
Original Lockplate, Now Percussion
Unmarked, Circa 1770-1775, right facing

The .75-caliber 3-stage barrel is 50.5” long, mottled brown fading to gunmetal gray, some illegible marks along with a “W” and a crown over “P” at breech; front sight is dovetailed brass blade type; tang was extended or repaired during early working period. The barrel is pinned. The lockplate appeared to be original, converted to percussion; frizzen spring bolt apertures filled; pan reduced in depth; two screw brass sideplate. Other brass furniture includes rear entry pipe and middle barrel shape thimble; front thimble retrofitted with a neat tinned sheet iron period replacement. Heavy cast brass trigger guard features long tail tang with elongated diamond shape multi-stepped finial, front tang with arrow shape finial; the bow displays simple line engraving at the outside borders. Stock shrinkage has forced the guards front tang ever-so-slightly out of its mortice. Also, brass buttplate and vacant thumbpiece. The stock has experienced wood losses forward of middle thimble along barrel channel. The ash ramrod retains its worm and appears to be original. An honest American fowler ready to hand or restore.
