Early Christian Springs, PA. Style Rifle by K. Moors in .54

This rifle is by Ken Moors of Edenton, N.C. Ken likes the early Christian Springs style guns and he did a fine job with this one as usual. The lock is a early Germanic style by Chambers. The barrel is a "C" weight 38" long Colerain in .54 caliber. The stock is a moderately figured piece of maple with aged brass hardware. The rifle is carved with griffin behind the cheek. Many of the Moravian guns from this area had animals carved in them during this period. The brass parts exhibit the fine engraving that Ken is known for. The fit, finish and aging on this rifle are all excellent. This rifle started out as one of my kits and Ken did a fine job of adding his own touches to make it a little different. 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 8 lbs. Pull is 14". More pictures can be found at http://claysmithguns.com/moors4.htm

York Rifle by Cabin Creek in .54 caliber

The owner of this rifle said to reduce the price. It is now over $600 less than a new one. This one has also had the rear sight moved forward about 3" so it is now 12" from the breech which makes the sight picture a little clearer, especially for those of us who's eyes are getting older. There are a few handling dings in the wood but overall is in like new condition. The barrel is a straight 15/16" by 39" long in .54 caliber. This length gives it a good balance point at 11", just where your forward hand would go. The barrel is by Green Mountain. It has square bottom grooves and the bore is excellent. I have been told by a previous owner that this gun is extremely accurate. The lock is a large Siler style by Davis. The double triggers are by Davis as well and will fire set or unset. The wood is a moderately curly piece of maple stained to a nice dark reddish brown and has a smooth hand rubbed finish. The hardware is brass. Overall it is a well made rifle and handles very nicely. Weight is 8 lbs 13 ozs. Pull is 13 3/4". More pictures can be found at http://claysmithguns.com/guns_on_hand.htm

Iron Mounted Rifle by Ian Pratt

A good customer who has suffered an injury and unfortunately can no longer shoulder a gun is offering this rifle for sale - I made this one for him a few years ago. It is strongly based on the "Old Holston Gun", a piece regarded by many to be one of our earliest iron mounted American rifles. Like the original in it's current condition, this is a dark, earthy piece with a deeply colored walnut stock and wrought iron furniture almost black in color. The barrel profile was closely copied by Ed Rayl and was made as a .62 caliber rifle like the original. I have checked the rifle over and it has been used but was very well cared for and has not been altered in any way. Additional images of the gun can be seen on the Contemporary Makers Blog (posted tues, feb 16 2010) or in American Tradition Magazine Volume 1, No. 2 - July 2010. SOLD PENDING FUNDS Thank You

English Stalking Rifle

Offered for sale is an English Stalking Rifle in 54 caliber with a 31 inch barrel length. This is considered to be an English style Jaeger used by gentlemen of the period to hunt game is the 1760's. The highly figured English walnut stock is fitted with steel components and all surfaces are highly engraved. The touch hole appears to be gold plated. The wrist of the rifle is beautifully checkered in 18th century style. The rifle is signed by J. Krechel of Saylorsburg, which I assume to be the builder. If you know the builder and care to share some information about him, I would greatly appreciate that. The rifle is in excellent condition and does have some light handling marks. I have never carried the rifle or hunted with it in the field. Price does not include shipping or packaging.
