This gun is styled after the Indian Trade Rifles of the
late 18th and early 19th century that were coming out of the Lancaster, PA. area. The
rifle is finished with a slightly aged finish unless otherwise
requested. All steel parts are fire blued. This is a very basic, well
styled rifle perfect for hunting or rendezvous. I have found that a 38" barrel gives the best balance
and is easy to handle in the woods.
