Wow! Tastes have evolved but the work is stunning on those guns. I wonder how many of them are still extant? Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos.

I must concur with S.D.Hughes and RDH45. I feel you have done more than justice to Michael's collection of rifles and artefacts, his book collection and the preservation of his life's work of records and research. Joe, I cannot think of anyone who could have done as much justice to Michaels collection. You were really a true friend to both Michael and his family and deserve to be congratulated by everyone who admired Michael from both near and far. I corresponded with him over several years and he was always willing to give his knowledge F.O.C to anyone who asked him. A Gentleman like that is a rare person, and I am honoured to have known him, even if it was just through the Internet.

Concur in all of the above.
If Cody can't be bothered, then don't bother them.

Agreed.

I recently saw a Simson cape gun that attempted to reach for that kind of engraving - it was for sale at Waffen Frankonia in Stuttgart for about 3300 Euros.
