Frank Bartlett Landcaster Longrifle

The rifle is beautifully made by the now deceased Mr.Frank Bartlett of Gallatin, TN. #236 made in 2002. The octagonal swamped barrel is 42” long and .50 caliber. The barrel is deeply browned. It is mounted with a steel blade front sight and a fancy Kentucky style rear sight. The top flat of the barrel is engraved in script “F.BARTLETT/2002/No 236.” The barrel is inlaid with two fine silver lines overlays are at the breech and is lightly filed on either side of the maker’s name. The touch hole is lined with a stainless steel liner. The stock is of very fancy curly maple with excellent tight figure especially through the butt area. The outstanding feature of the gun is the profuse high quality wire inlay which graces both sides of the buttstock, both sides of the wrist and the forend. I can’t even begin to measure the amount of silver wire inlay. The sliding wooden patchbox is used and is covered with a design of wire inlay which extends on to the buttstock itself. The alignment of the delicate wire inlay is perfect and flows well. Mr. Bartlett was a master artist. The area surrounding the patch box is decorated with scrolls of the same delicate wire inlay. Each side of the wrist is also decorated with scrolls as is the area around the flared breech plug tang. The area behind the cheek piece is inlaid with beautiful scroll design. The lock plate and side plate mortises are surrounded by wire inlay with scroll inlay on both sides of the for end and surrounding the ramrod entry thimble. Straight line inlay along the ramrod channel with scroll flourishes along the way. The gun is mounted with Brass furniture including the buttplate, triggerguard, ramrod thimbles, nosecap and sideplate. All furniture is nicely engraved except the nosecap which is sculpted. Period style scroll and cross hatch design is incorporated on all of the furniture. Double set triggers are present. Large early style flintlock with beveled edge is present. The lockplate and hammer are nicely engraved and color casehardened. The top of the wrist is inlaid with a circular silver inlay with engraved border. The inlay is surrounded again by fancy wire inlay design. In addition, two wide silver overlay bands are applied to each of the ramrod thimbles. Overall condition of this magnificent rifle is new. I have included several pictures but if you have a specific area you wish to have additional pictures of feel free to call or email me with a request.

Caywood Type

This Caywood Type "C" Fusil was purchased some years ago and has never been used or fired. It is in "Like New" condition.The gun was purchased when this particular model was not offered in a kit form, so it was professionally assembled by Caywood. I only have 2 pictures I can post here. If you need more pictures and/or paperwork from Caywood with the particulars and specifications, I can supply that. Caywood's assembled new price on this gun is $2.295.00. I was not able to download a full length picture, but as you can see the wood grain is beautiful and continues for the full length of the gun stock. The barrel is 41 inches long and a .58 cal. rifle barrel. I believe that if you check with Caywood's website, you can order different size barrels in rifled and smooth bore for this gun. The furniture is Brass and the thumb piece is sterling silver. If you have been wanting to get a Caywood Fusil and want a good deal, here it is......
