Don Klein is a charter member of the Custom Gunmakers Guild and he is a Master Gunsmith. He has built many bolt-action and falling-block rifles over the span of his career. This flintlock rifle was the first that he has ever been commissioned to craft. Don did all the wood and metal work on this flintlock. Some major parts of the gun, like the barrel, were not hand made. A specialist did the engraving.
Don has had many apprentices in previous years. They spend time watching Don and learn to craft a custom firearm themselves while he oversees the process.
