Welcome to Sitting Fox Custom Muzzleloaders

The symbol of the sitting fox within a circle was used as an assurance of consistent quality in the early days of the fur trade. It was stamped on the gunlocks and even on the gunstocks as a sign of quality parts and workmanship. The traders, trappers, Native Americans and immigrant settlers came to look for this symbol of value before parting with their very hard-earned money, furs or goods. By supplying a quality product at a fair price the fur companies continued to grow and prosper for several hundred years as one of the first and most successful commercial enterprises in the new territories. Trade Guns so marked, built in England, were imported by the thousands and distributed from Florida to the Yukon.

Sitting Fox Custom Muzzleloaders is proud to be a part of this rich tradition. Incorporated in 1996 by Ray Franks, Sitting Fox Custom Muzzleloaders has grown to be one of the largest suppliers of custom muzzleloaders kits. We stand ready to help you with any of your custom muzzleloading needs.

In 2013 we added a second workshop and office in southwest Florida and moved the entire operation there in 2022.

We don’t have a retail shop or a catalogue, just a workshop and office, so our overhead is still low.
