Leather Shot Bags & Accouterments for the French & Indian War.
Welcome to my Blog! My name is Darrel Lang and I specialize in the Replication of Leather shot bags & Accouterments made in the colonies by the harness and saddle maker of the18th century. All items are hand sewn using waxed linen thread, dyed, then treated with neatsfoot oil & bee’s wax. The leather used is of veg. tanned cow hide 2-3 or 4-5 oz. weight. Other materials used are pig skin, period correct linens for the 18th century and iron or brass buckles. Please take a look at what I have to offer. Thank you!

My Fowler

Here are a few photos of my fowler. It is a copy of a early British fowler built here in the colonies, made from part of other guns.
Barrel (Colerain) is Dutch, octagon to round,46" long, 75 cal. lock (Chambers) is early English import, trigger guard and side plate are from a early English fowler, and the butt plate is from a early musket. The fowler has some heft to it but, is well balanced and holds and shoots well.






The fowler was built by Nate McKenzie, You can check out his work at:  http://www.natemckenzie.com
