Celebrating the Artistry of Historic Firearms (by Brett French)
There is a small group of mostly Montana craftsman who gather every year to celebrate and learn more about one of their favorite topics: building and decorating historic flintlock rifles. The Montana Historical Gunmaker’s Guild recently met in Bozeman to study engraving techniques, admire each other’s latest projects and discuss building techniques.
To see photos of some of the beautiful rifles, and to learn more about the group, check out my story in this week’s Montana Untamed website at http://bgz.tt/7ti35
