Mold and Gun shop
« on: July 17, 2018, 06:42:29 PM »
I'm considering buying a flintlock pistol kit sold by Larry Zornes, Mold and Gun Shop in Jackson, Oh and having it built by Paul Hull of the Red Brush Stocks Co. in Jackson, Oh.  Has anyone seen the quality of Mr Hull's work?  I've not seen anything built by him and am concerned.
Thanks,
Rich

Build it yourself. No point in paying someone else to do the fun part.

I have seen a couple of rifles and a smoothbore that Paul H built, and I don't think you would be disappointed.  Fit and finish was well done.  One of the three was carved.

I keep learning of more and more places selling muzzle loader stuff here in Ohio.  You can tell I have only been here a year.  Few places in Oklahoma!
Thanks for letting me know of one more.

Mould&Gun Shop is a good outfit.The do most if not all lock assembly for R.E.Davis.
I wouldn't hesitate to do business with them.

Mr. Roller, you just solved a minor mystery for me! The French Type "C" lock I got from TOTW has "M/G" and a Z with a sunrise over it, stamped inside. I was pretty sure it was a Davis lock but Track doesn't say. Now I know it is and was assembled by Larry Zorn at M & G Shoppe. It is as well made as any lock I have ever worked with. Strong and fast!
Thanks for the info.
