  1. Those were ordered by the Pennsylvania Museum commission. There was supposed to be 100 made. 50 by jack, and 50 by John Bivins.. my dad and I made roughly 85 barrels for them when the commission called it halts. Those guns should be bringing double that amount of money.

  2. I understood there were actually 200 of these made. 100 by each man. Even by Jack Haugh and odd by John bivins. I have #100 and I had read Jim chambers had #200 I believe. Supposedly at least most of the barrels were made by Paris. I was only able to acquire the rifle. Would love to fight nd the horn.

  3. From what JB told me. Horn was an extra $ feature, which some weren’t interested to have.
