I have a bit of correspondence dated 1982 which listed their address as Haughley,
Stowmarket, Suffolk IP14 3NS. If I remember, the company was run by one Sandy
MacNabb. The name is correctly Coach Harness (no AND). I once owned one of their
muskets and was told by a competitive shooter that the breeching was not done
well. I don't recall the exact problem, but if you do much live shooting, it may
be worth unbreeching and checking it out. I also recall after the Bicentennial
having been offered a batch of the 1st models which had been store displays for
$125 each. Ah, the lost opportunities I could tell you about.
