Southern Mountain Longrifle

in .40 caliber

 

 

 

This is a nicely done Southern Mountain style rifle. New and unfired.

 

The wood is cherry cut on the maker's property. The barrel is by Green Mountain and is 36" long by 13/16" across the flats in .40 caliber. The lock is an Chamber's Late Ketland style. It sparks extremely well and there is a touch hole liner. All of the hardware was made by the maker. The iron parts have all been aged. The sights are tall with plenty of height for filing to point of aim.

 

The wood to metal fit is very tight. The rifle holds well and balances nicely in the forward hand. This would make an excellent small game rifle.

 

Weight is 6 lbs. 5 ozs.  Pull is 13"
