Title: Pecatonica Tennessee Classic finished: Pics and 1st shot
Post by: Bob Gerard on October 15, 2021, 04:52:37 AM
I have completed the Pecatonica Tennessee Classic Flintlock LR. It sports some pretty Curly Maple, an A weight swamped .50 Colerain barrel and a Late Ketland lock. It balances and comes up to sight extremely well, and wow it is fast! I put about 60+ hours work into this, and think it was time well spent. It will be going up to Pennsylvania in a few days.
This is a link to a YouTube video of the first shot:

Very nice and impressive build.  Beautiful wood and finish.  Lock is fast tuned and appears smooth.  My compliments 👍😁

Thank you gentlemen. There were times when I was happy no one was around to hear me  :-X, but all-in-all this was a pretty enjoyable build. The lock is very fast, and when the main spring issue is corrected it will be even better.

Beautiful job! Care to share your finish/ staining  process? I really like the color you achieved, I understand that all individual woods don't react all the same, but that is the reddish-brown I would like to end up with on my current build.
