    Yes it’s a TM Hunt Magua, one of my favorites for daily use. A Winkler Woodsman and a couple of HB Forge hawks. “These are a few of my favorite things” (picture Julie Andrew’s)

    I’ve ordered the CNC kit these were made from. I didn’t spring for the wood upgrade. FE347BFF-B413-4603-8AD9-3A7E3DD9A7BC.jpeg

    That plate on the butt is hinged. What is kept in that?


    Sorry that I’m not familiar with revolvers and other antique firearms like this.

    Tis a patch box lad. This is actually modeled after a rifle made around Asheville, NC circa 1855. It was converted to percussion later.
    Many rifles in the southern mountain regions just had a hole which grease was stuck into for the patches.

    Some did have coffee grinders in place of the patch box. CA6FCABD-E486-470A-9835-10D3D2384178.jpeg

    I was at Duke McCaa’s place this week (Gulf Breeze Firearms) and he was showing me a pre War Model 70. That was redone with an acid burn stock very similar to your flintlock. It was amazing.

    Pics?
    I’ve heard of people doing it but never seen one.
    I am currently doing a kit for a friend as practice it is walnut. I reshaped the cheek piece with a chisel

    Are we talking The Last of the Mohicans? That was a good movie! Also recently watched Charlton Heston and Brian Keith in Mountain Men, and Robert Redford in Jeremiah Johnson, giving me the bug to get a flintlock. That's one fine looking rifle you posted. :cool:
