York, PA Style Longrifle

.50 Caliber 42" Rice Barrel

 

 

This is a well made Chamber's York rifle kit. The stock is a piece of curly maple with a dark stain. The top of the comb has flats extending from the buttplate going forward. The barrel is by Rice and is a swamped profile 42" long in .50 caliber. It has a touch hole liner. The lock is a Chamber's Golden Age style. Mounts are brass. The barrel is browned and the lock and other steel parts are deeply blued. The wood to metal fit is excellent. The gun appears to have been fired very little and well maintained. The bore is excellent.

 

The rifle balances and holds very well.

 

 

Weight is 7 lbs. 8 ozs.  Pull is 14".
