This is one of Jim Chamber's Lancaster
kit rifles. Don't know who assembled it but they did a good
job with the fit and finish but decided against any
decoration of any kind. The stock is a nice curly maple with
curl from end to end with light spots of figure. The lock is
Chamber's Golden Age flint. The barrel is a Colerain 44"
swamped in .50 caliber with a coned muzzle for easier
loading. Hardware is all brass. The barrel
and steel parts have been browned. Balance point is at the
rear sight. Handles and points very nicely. This would be a
great rifle for hunting and re-enacting. Most rifles of the
18th century were 'working' guns and their owners were not
as interested in a show piece as getting meat for the table.
Weight is 9 lbs 10 ozs. Pull is 14".
