Dennis Preddy beater rifle
« on: May 07, 2017, 08:59:13 PM »
 This month's Muzzel Blasts has a feature on Michigan gun builder Dennis Preddy an his beater gun he built. Wished I had a clunker like that for everyday use. Mighty impressive work.  Oldtravler

Dennis is quite the gun builder!  I have been keenly interested in his air rifles!  Lewis & Clark must have had the same bug back in the day :)

That's just another fine example of Dennis's extensive artistic ability. He loves to embellish things with beautiful engraving. You should see his long fowler.... or his streetrod engine! His work is always amazing!

Always excellent work by a fine gentleman. I met Dennis at the CLA show in 2011 and look forward to seeing him and Mrs. Preddy every year. He has also done a great job inletting some swamped barrels for me over the years.  Always a pleasure to deal with.        Bob

There is a very nice Bedford flintlock rifle made by Dennis for sale posted up on Track of the Wolf.

I have been collecting parts for a Bedford and seeing this fine example is getting my heart fluttering!! :)
