Through the decades of making first the Zephyr and now the Faeton underhammer rifles, I have been asked many times if the drawings are available. Always I would decline to sell drawings as I was quite protective of my designs. However, I have been enlightened by a friend and colleague with the thought that if someone really wanted to copy the Faeton there is little to stop them. If they had the drawings at least they would make a faithful copy that would pay tribute to the original form. He reminded me of the old adage which claims that, Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Perhaps he's correct and perhaps it's time for me to share the Faeton with others who wish to create a Faeton, or a variation thereof, for themselves. So, the plans for the Faeton Receiver are now available. The Faeton Receiver Drawings consist of two 24"x 36" professional mechanical drawings which will allow any machinist to replicate the Faeton Receiver, or they can serve as a starting point for the creation of a variant.
The precise dimensions depicted in the drawings will also allow a machinist to design a hammer and trigger that will properly function within the design parameters of the receiver. Or, one can use the hammer/trigger/mainspring sets that are available from several sources.
The cost of the 2-page set of Faeton Receiver Drawings is $40 postpaid. Unlike the photo of my original drawing, above, the drawings will be clean, crisp, and new. Please email me at: underhammers@RadicalConcepts.info for ordering instructions or if you have any questions.
