Cooperstown Trading Post was established in 1977

Prior to then it was just a hobby. I would build a gun, on occasion, for myself. Gun parts and specialty tools, at that time, were hard to come by. So… a business was born. After a few years of part time work, the future looked good. Diversity was a necessity. Muzzle loader accessories and clothing entered into the picture. I wanted Cooperstown Trading Post to offer everything having to do with muzzle loading and the time era of pre-1840. I now have a store with a large inventory of muzzle loaders, rifle barrels and everything you need to build a gun. At times, I have a couple of finished, custom, muzzle loaders on hand for sale.
