Here are a few of my Custom Flintlocks from my workshop along with some Magazine Covers and some accoutrements I have made over the past 38 years............. Jim W. Filipski
"Working in my own style...my choice is not to duplicate but to interpret the style of the old schools of rifle & fowling gun building.............for to "duplicate" is a gift that I have not been yet privileged to!"
Some of my custom builds from the 1980-90's........

Some recent Custom builds:
Builds from TOTW parts sets
German Jaeger rifles
"One of the greatest delights of the Germanic rifle of the 18th Century
is that almost any whim of the maker can be put to use.
Designers and makers of American longrifles do not have comparable freedom"
