A .40 caliber, 10" browned barrel, with adjustable rear sight, Terry's pistol is a left-hand model. The difference is in the pivoting safety, meant to be set to fire by the trigger finger. Also the grip is shaped for a left hand, though fits just fine for a right hand, too. His front sight is a wide brass blade.
Fifty caliber, with a 10" browned barrel, Beau wanted a belt hook and a mounted ramrod, two firsts for my underhammer pistols. Beau has a large hand, so his pistol has a larger grip. He also wanted the adjustable rear sight, but has a thin steel front blade.
I will be adding a new page, all about building these pistols. I plan on starting work on it soon!
The Star & Four Directions
Our underhammer pistols are built using a Billinghurst style action, which has four moving parts; trigger, hammer, mainspring/trigger guard, and trigger spring. The simplicity of design makes it extremely efficient and easy to maintain. Instant ignition is achieved by a straight path through the nipple into the powder charge. This is probably the easiest to clean muzzle loading firearm you will ever own!
Basic price is $1500.00 USD
Trigger spur is $50.00
Adjustable trigger is $50.00
Other custom details are priced accordingly.
As shown above, custom display cases are available for your pistol. Price depends on details of the case, and accoutrements added. These are custom made for each individual gun.
