Custom Longrifle

by K. Moors

in .54 caliber, 38" Barrel

 

 

This is a beautiful well made custom rifle in the Moravian/Bethlehem PA styling. Having a brass patchbox would date this gun to the 1770-1780 period.

 

The stock is a piece of moderately figured curly maple. The lock is a Chamber's Siler style. Mounts are brass and have very well executed engraving and a satin finish. The barrel 38" swamped Rice in .54 caliber with some "aging" to the finish. The overall gun is finished "as new".

 

Overall a well made and beautiful gun. The gun is new and unfired. The rifle balances and holds very well.

 

 

Weight is 8 lbs.   Pull is 13".
