Ken Gahagan American Musket

In the tradition of the early 1690's French military muskets and trade guns: here is Ken Gahagans "Assembled American musket ca. 1715"

The barrel by Ed Rayl is .60 caliber smoothbore, 46" long, breech is 11/16". The Iron butt plate, trigger guard, pipes, side plate, trigger plate and trigger were all hand forged by Mr. Gahagan. The Rifle Shoppe lock/ castings from an antique ca.1680 was assembled by Jess and Mike Melot.

This is a very unique contemporary gun with a truly historical flavor. Ken's work whether it be furniture, guns or knives is always fantastic. One of our most formidable artists.
