Around the Web: Yancey von Yeast Web Site

Yancy von Yeast has a web site which showcases his restoration and original work.

"For twenty five years I have specialized in conservation, restoration, and reproduction of 17th, 18th, and 19th Century firearms and gun locks.  Until recently, I have worked silently for museums and collectors in the United States and Europe."

1760's English Fowler by Humphreys

Early 18th Century Club But Fowler

This is based off of an original in the Foreman collection.  It has been featured in a number of publications.  American Military Shoulder Arms Volume 1 by George Moller, and Muskets of the Revolution by Bill Ahearn. I have admired this fowler for years.  My reproduction has a 61 1/2" barrel. The lock was built from Rifle Shoppe Parts with some modifications.  It is stocked in American walnut as was the original.  This is one of the few Colonial period fowlers that featured a wood patchbox.  The hardware is all hand forged.  The gun is aged and distressed.
