This is a very nice Lancaster rifle by
Wayne Trout of Virginia. I have known Wayne for many years
and each gun he produces is better than the last. Good to
see he has been listening to my advice over the years. This
one has really fine lines and proportions. Well made and
typical of the 1770-1780 period.
The stock is a nice piece of moderately
figured curly maple with curl running the full length. The
barrel is a Getz 44" swamped in .54 caliber. The lock is
a Chamber's Golden Age flint. The hardware is brass which
was designed by John Bivins for the Bicentennial limited
edition rifles he produced in 1976. The rifle is very well
made with tight inlets and nice aging. The raised carving is
well designed and cleanly done.
Overall a very fine rifle for hunting,
re-enacting or just hang on the wall and admire the
Weight is 9 lbs 4 ozs. Pull is 14".
