    Anybody ever heard of Esopus Gun Works. A friend of mine has a 45 cal. rotating double barrel, percusion cap, muzzle loader. It has a single trigger & hammer with a nipple on each barrel. You shoot one barrel and then rotate the barrels 180 degree's and fire the second. Any info would be helpful.

    I remeber them being sold thru Dixie and other Black Powder outlets, used to advertise in Muzzle Blasts too, they also made A turn-barrel shotgun , muzzle loader, last ones I saw were being sold by Numrich Arms in New York,
    If Heaven ain't got A loading bench.....I'm going to Hell,

    Thanks for the info TRYVR, I've never seen one like this before. It is a sweet shooting gun as far as muzzleloaders go. Very accurate.
