I have a question about current production black powder shotguns. Over the years, from time to time, I will do a half-hearted search for a SINGLE BARREL black powder muzzle loading 10GA shotgun. I can't find any current production firearms of this type. I am not interested in double barrel guns. I prefer straight cylinder bore and pretty long barrels.

If anyone knows of a current production(or just recently out of production) gun that meets this description, I would really appreciate a heads up.

Thanks.

That's not a 10GA shotgun. Except for being only a 58 caliber, that's more or less the idea I have in mind.

Say, H&R made a 10 ga. single shot break open 10 ga, my old boss had one. you could load one of those up with the Holy Black...look at the third one down...

Getting warm now.

Add about 6 inches or so to the barrel length and make it a 10GA and that's exactly what I'm after. Not too thrilled with that price though. In ten years I've never found one. At one time I found a double barrel 10GA muzzle loader but I do not want a double.

If they made a muzzle loading version, I'd probably jump.

A rocky solution?

A 10 gauge bore is .775.
The bore of the Brown Bess is .75 caliber but it's flint.

Pedersoli makes one:

Middlesex Village has some too:

Their English Lock Fishtail Fowler is also a .75:

Are you familiar with the Knight TK2000 12 ga.?
Its performance would probably far exceed almost any traditional 10 ga..

Thanks. I already ruled out the brown bess years ago. Not into flint. Really really want the full .775 bore too.
