RIFLE – “GERMANIC” PATTERN 1776 (RIFLED CARBINE), .610 CALIBRE (PISTOL BALL), .650
CALIBER BORE: SERIAL NUMBER 1 OF ONLY 4 MADE BY ERNIE COWAN. THE BRITISH BOUGHT 200 OF THESE FROM GERMANY, THEN MADE 800 MORE BASED UPON THE DESIGN. ALL WERE SENT TO AMERICA FOR USE IN OUR REVOLUTION. COPIED FROM AN ORIGINAL (ONLY TWO ARE KNOWN) IN OUR COLLECTION. IT IS A PERFECT COPY – ALL HAND MADE JUST AS THEY WERE DONE IN 1776, RIGHT DOWN TO THE GOLD PLATED BRASS FOUND ON THE ORIGINAL. I PUT ABOUT A DOZEN ROUNDS THROUGH IT WHEN IT CAME OFF THE BENCH, OTHERWISE IT IS “NEW”. IT IS TIME TO PASS IT ALONG TO SOMEONE ELSE TO ENJOY.
