Pea Shooter
« on: November 22, 2019, 06:24:16 PM »
Had alot of fun building this 32cal for my son. It has a 6''rifled barrel from MLBS and gun is 11" overall, the lock is from Stan Hollenbaugh, wood from Top Jaw, engraving and lock tuning by Jon at Kingsbury Arms. Coin silver inlays and sideplate and trigger by me. So nice to have reliable, dependable and curteous folk to deal with. I am new to all of this and this forum has been indespensable to me. Thanks to you all. Please offer your critique.

I like it very much. It kinda has a Folk Art look to it. Reminds me of some pistols made way back by Hacker Martin. Nice build.......Lynn

I like that one a lot. Does it "point and shoot" well without sights?

Thanks Lynn, I do like what I have seen of Hackers' work. Seth I figured a small gun like this would be for can't miss range and yes it points real nice. It is unfired at present.

Thanks Tom. I enjoy building them, they don't take up alot of space. It seems like anything goes so long as the execution is good. Wish there were more small locks available.

Well, I feel sorry for the peas!  Your son is going to love shooting that beautiful pistol so much that there will not be a safe pea anywhere in your neighborhood.
Beautiful work, especially with all those inlays on curving wood.

Craig, thanks!  Busy with a rifle now but anxious to start another pistol. So much to make!
