Thomas Earle, New England Fowler
An exact full scale drawing of an original Thomas Earle in a private collection. Circa 1770s, Massachusetts fowler. Drawn with 1 3/16" breech, the original has a 54", 20 bore barrel, though a 46-48" barrel will also work well. Stocked in Cherry, the fowler has classic locally made French style brass hardware, and a small French style faceted lock.
