The silver mounts of this piece follow the lines of the "Johannes Faber" rifle. The lock made from castings, follows a 1760's British Dragoon, a perfect style for the Shenandoah Valley c. 1760-70.
The epitome of the experience of Jim Chambers, this pistol features silver mountings, fire blued barrel, designed, carved, finished and engraved by Jim.
This interesting pistol is built using an original barrel. It is Eric's interpretation of something made circa 1765-1775 at Bethlehem or Christian Spring.
An apprentice of Hacker Martin, his "wriggle" engraving is easy to identify on many of Hacker's rifles and pistols. This pistol is entirely handmade.
