...............I have ordered it from Derbyshire Arms Ltd., in the UK.

So far.......
Customer service has been very good.

The weapon will come with;

A hardened frizzen
A browned barrel.
A touch hole drilled.
The wood stained and finished as I asked - dark brown to match my original.
The barrel BP proofed in Birmingham.
A payment of 50% deposit and the balance when the weapon is ready to ship.

Seems to be a good buy............I will post further when I receive it.

You are no doubt the hands down winner of the bought the most things that go bang in the last several months. That vacation rental you have for mad money must be doing great business this summer. :bigsmile:

Had some time to myself today so I sat down and ran my new endoscope down the barrels of my collection.
They are not great images but sufficient to see the state of the bore I think. For €7,95 i recon it's good value...........

This is my original Baker Rifle and to honest, it looks good enough to shoot...........

Better go and cast some ball for it! :roll: :roll:
