    Wonderful Kragicon with the Cataract Tool mount and scope!

    What is the story on the Match-Lock and the awesome 'swamped' barrel above it?

    Top one reminds me of the punt guns they used on flocks of ducks on a river or swamp.

    I think the punt guns were quite a bit larger. Mounted in the bow, they had to turn the boat to aim. (Read 'Chesapeake' by James Michener).
    Had no idea there was a Kragicon sniper, thanks.
    Quite a diverse group of guns you have there!

    Would love to shoot it in a vintage sniper match! Camp Perry would be a good place to do that.

    What are the odds, I was bidding against you on this one and I'm also from Chicago. One way or another, it was going to end up here

    I do hope you've at least shot it once or twice. I'd very much like to know how the optic performed, as well as the rifle.
