HBO is currently filming an adaptation of “Undaunted Courage” by Stephen Ambrose. (HBO miniseries) They contacted me to acquire a Girardoni for filming. A contract was signed and off went my rifle to Canada. There, two hard rubber props were made for filming. One of the props was partial compensation for use of the gun. My replica and that prop are seen in this post.
I donated the prop to the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center in Great Falls, Montana. It will be displayed and featured in talks given by the park rangers.
Hopefully, the series will be completed and aired.
The display is currently up!
