Early English Style Rifle by K. Moors in .50 caliber

Another fine rifle by Ken Moors of Edenton, N.C. The lock is a Chambers Early Ketland lock. The barrel is a "B" weight 42" long Colerain in .50 caliber. The stock is a highly figured piece of maple with aged brass hardware. The rifle is raised carved in a traditional English style. The brass parts exhibit the fine engraving that Ken is known for. The fit, finish and aging on this rifle are all excellent. The pictures can tell more than I can as to how fine a gun this is. This rifle holds and balances very well. I have sold several of Ken's guns in the past and the new owners have been very pleased with the quality of the work and the accuracy. Weight is 7 lbs. 14 oz., Pull is 14".

Lehigh Valley Plain Rifle

This is my interpretation of a good solid plain rifle in the Lehigh Valley style. Architecturally the piece reflects the lines of Herman Rupp, but with slightly more robust sections through the wrist and buttstock reminiscent of earlier works by Peter Neihart. Sometimes referred to as a "Schimmel" or Barn rifle, these elegant pieces were probably quite common, and were used every day as tools. I have several late 18th and early 19th century tools that I frequently use while building a flintlock rifle, including forged hand vises, wooden planes, a draw knife, and some very large chisels. Every antique tool has dings, scratches, rust blemishes, and cracks that distinguish it from other tools in the chest. With that in mind, I built and finished this rifle with the intention of creating the same warm character and patina found on antique tools. This rifle was stocked in a dense piece of red maple, with a 42" .50 caliber Colerain barrel. Lock is a modified Chambers Golden Age, with a 13 5/8" trigger pull. A buttplate and triggerguard are the only pieces of furniture, with two sheet brass ramrod pipes forward. After staining with aquafortis, the stock was distressed to reflect wear and tear of actual use, but not abuse. The metal parts were similarly allowed to develop a heavy patina outdoors, rubbed back, then aged further, complete with "wise" marks on the breech and elsewhere. I view a piece like this as a continued work in progress, and that the rifle will develop character and patina with genuine use and wear. For more photos and information, Please visit:

New England Rifle

I don't see many New England rifles being made these days so I decided to try my hand at it. I am hoping there are some current or former New Englanders who might like such a rifle. This one has a 50 cal., 42", "B" weight swamped barrel made by Rice. The stock is cherry. The lock is a Chamber's Classic Ketland. Trigger pull is 14". Rear sight is 11.5" from the breech. The butt plate is 5" H x 1 7/8" W. The balance point is just to the rear of the rear sight, the ideal location. I have some high resolution pictures available upon request. Thanks for looking.
