This is a very nice rifle made about 20
years ago by Ken Netting. It has been owned by two pervious
people neither of which ever fired the gun. It has a
combination of Pennsylvania area influences including Lehigh
Valley, York and Lancaster.
The stock is a plain piece of maple
with nice carving in a York, PA. styling. The handmade
patchbox is a side opening style with a "coffin" lid. The
barrel is a Getz oct-round 46" long in .45 caliber. The
hardware is brass with handmade thimbles and nosecap. The
lock is a Chamber's Early Ketland.
Very nice gun overall with good
workmanship and tight inletting. The carving and engraving
is well executed. The only area that I personally don't like
is the width of the wrist which is a bit wide in relation to
it's width when viewed from the top. Just an aesthetic
problem as the feel of the wrist area is fine. The gun
balances and holds very well. Even with this long of a
barrel, the balance point is at the forward hand hold as it
Weight is 8 lbs 6 ozs. Pull is 14".
