This article was also taken from the June 1976 issue of Muzzle Blasts magazine.

Wonderful rifle and stiil in use up to the time of the article. Wonder where it is today? Lots of history in this gun as well as being a splendid example of Bucks County work. Anyone out there have an idea where it is?

David,

Enjoyed the article and it has a neat tidbit for me.  I found the mention of John Fries's Rebellion and the relationship to the Verner gun to be very intresting.


BTW...Not sure how it's done but the image size is almost too small for me to read without some effort.  Could be my monitor or laptop screen but it looks like there possibly is room to adjust the width of those images.
