Clove rifle?
« on: November 21, 2021, 05:01:27 AM »
Has anybody ever heard of a builder by the name of Clove?
At the gun shop today I saw a custom flintlock rifle that had the word "CLOVE" stamped on the side of the lock and on the top of the barrel. I am assuming it is either the name of the builder or the name person for whom it was built.

There was a Jack Clove who at least made triggers & sights. You might try Suzie at The Gunworks up in Oregon. I remember that they used to have some guns with his triggers on them some time ago.
