This is a very nice longrifle by Chris Immel. It is taken from an original that possibly was from the York area of Pennsylvania. The barrel is by Longhammock in .54 smoothbore (28 ga.), oct-round and 44" long. The lock is a Chamber's Early Ketland that has been reshaped and tuned. The stock is curly maple with good figure in it the entire length. It has a early style swell at the rear thimble are that is neatly defined by the carving. It has a aquafortis stain and a hand rubbed oil finish. The brass mounts have been filed with raised panels which is very nicely done. The fit and finish is excellent. The gun is new, never fired although the lock has been snapped and the frizzen shows this as it has slight wear. The gun has good balance and points very nicely. Weight is 9 lbs 3 oz.

Stock Duplicator

I am selling my current stock duplicator as I am upgrading to a new one. This one has served me well for the last three years. It is mostly home made except for the head piece which is by Marlin. It will do stocks up to six feet in length and can be expanded. Overall length is ten feet and is three feet in width. Side rails run on liner motion bearings for a smooth forward and back motion. The stocks will rotate 360 and lock in each quarter turn. Motor is a 1 3/4 HP Porter Cable router with 1/2" and 1/4" collets. A variety of styluses and bits come with it. Extra fixtures for holding the stocks will also come with it. The spindle type is shown. I also made 'U' shaped clamps as well. The stocks in the picture are some youth rifles. The left one is the pattern, the right has just been shaped and inlet. This must be picked up. It can not be shipped and should not be dismantled. Call or email me with any questions.

Lancaster Style Rifle By Robert Ambright in .50 caliber

This is another fine rifle by Bob Ambright of Eagle River, Wisconsin. This one is a Lancaster, PA. style. The barrel is a Colerain 38" swamped in .50 caliber with an aged finish. The lock is a large Siler with aged finish and there is a touch hole liner. Very nicely done early style single trigger. The stock is a nicely figured piece of curly maple with brass hardware and is stained a honey golden color. The carving is very well done consisting of raised and incised with silver wire accents. There is a small bark inclusion on the right forend near the rear thimble. (see pictures) Not a problem, just adds to the caricature of the rifle. The fit and finish is excellent. There gun is dated 2012 but appears new, no dents or dings. The frizzen is smooth with no wear. Bore is mint. The rear sight is 12" down the barrel for a clear sight picture even with my aging eyesight. The deep cheek, light weight and slight castoff make this a very comfortable gun to shoulder. Bob does an excellent job and for the price, this is a great gun. Weight is 7 lbs. Pull is 13 1/2". More pictures can be found at http://claysmithguns.com/ambright2.htm

Ron Ehlert Buck's County Rifle

This rifle was completed in January 1987. It is the 28th custom rifle that my father built. You can clearly see what a master artisan he was that early in his career. This rifle is .50 caliber. The overall length is 57 1/2 inches, length of pull is 14 inches, and the barrel is 42 inches. Beautiful figure on the stock and wire inlay adorn the length of this rifle. The barrel has intricate bands at the breach and muzzle. This rifle does have a thumb piece inlay with the original owner's initials engraved. According to the owner, this rifle has never been fired, except by my father when sighting-in the rifle. I have more pictures that I can send to interested parties, including full length photos. I will ship in a locked aluminum case that must be returned to me. $8,000 or best offer, plus shipping.
