The TVM catalog lists their fowler in 20 ga. only, but you can get it larger
for the asking. I have one, and wanted the bigger bore for my hunting
conditions. I asked for 12 ga.(.729"), the gun is actually 11 ga. (.750").
No extra charge for the different barrel.

there was a good deal of similarity with French trade and some New
England fowlers. Hamilton has pictures of a New England gun that is a
restocked French trade gun in the book.
Neumann's Battle Weapons of the American Revolution, now in print
in paperback, show a number of New England Fowlers and would be a
