Bruton rifle
Picture of wattlebuster
Most have seen it already but Im home bored out of my skull so here is a few pics of my Don Bruton .62 cal. Its a 38 inch .62 cal Charlie Burton barrel. A Caywood "Wilson" english lock. A plain piece of Dunlap slab sawn maple and Don forged the mounts. The front sight he made from a silver quarter. It just a plain no carving no engraving hunting rifle for a plain old fashion redneck. Curt Lyles made me a nice bark tan deer hide bag for it an since its Dons "Boone" pattern I had Scott Sibley make me a close copy of the Boone southern horn. I name all my guns an this one I call Samson. He shoots true and hits HARD

Nothing beats the feel of a handmade southern iron mounted flintlock on a crisp frosty morning

Wow, beautiful rifle. That's about the style I would love to have, nothing really fancy but yet it still has class. How could you be bored with that thing hanging around. Smiler

Thanks for posting WB. Always enjoy looking. Sure is a nice gun. .62 RIFLE you say? Man that's just the ticket for elk, bear and buffalo for sure!

That's certainly a major "muscle" rifle. I would bet it puts the smackdown on deer.
