Building the Northwest Trade Gun

Wanna build a Trade Gun?

The North House Folk School gives you that chance with a 10-day gun making class beginning March 18th, 2013.

Example of a trade gun

Duluth, MN, gun maker Brent Gurtek will instruct students on building an authentic example of this historic weapon, largely with hand tools, in the manner of an old-time gun shop.

These smooth bore trade guns are as functional today as they were in 1790. Lightweight, sturdy, and versatile for bird, rabbit, bear or deer.
