This is a beautiful well made custom rifle by Shane Emig of Cabin Creek Muzzle
Loading. Schimmel is a Germanic word that in rural Pennsylvania came to mean
grey or plain. These guns were also referred to as Barn guns. Basically a cheap
gun to use for hunting or pest control around the farm. They typically have no
buttplate, no entry thimble and often just a simple sheet iron trigger guard.
The stock is a very nice piece of curly maple with a satin hand-rubbed finish. The lock is a Chamber's
large Siler style that has been browned.
Mounts are brass with an aged finish. The swamped
Colerain barrel 38" long in .45 caliber with a deeply browned finish. The inlets are well done with no gaps between wood and metal.
Overall a well made and beautiful gun. The gun is new and unfired.
The rifle balances and holds very well.
Weight is 7 lbs. 8 ozs. Pull is 13½".
