Jud has been working on an exciting new project: a Cumberland Rifle which will be a companion to the Cumberland Pistol in the author's collection. It features an incredibly complex lock with a French Cock, which by itself took 6 weeks of hard work for Jud to design and build. Jud is just now shaping and inletting the steel patchbox. The progress so far is documented below in chronological order.
