Colonial Virginia Style 45 Cal. Flintlock Longrifle

**SPF** This is a super nice older 45 caliber contemporary flintlock that I've owned for a number of years. Colonial Virginia Rifle style. 42" barrel and almost 59" overall. 13 3/4" LOP. This rifle is unsigned. Gorgeous figured stock and nicely engraved brass patchbox, toeplate, sideplate and a German silver "man in the moon" cheekrest inlay. The wood has a nice scraped appearance. The barrel has a heavy patina and the entire gun has been nicely aged. The buttstock and wrist are relief carved with a couple C scrolls and vines. Set trigger and lock function flawlessly. Have no idea who made this or when exactly, but it is a great rifle. (The front bow of the triggerguard has a small soldered repair and there is a small scratch to the tang.....mentioned for completeness). Rifle comes with a great handmade fringed and pillow ticking lined hunting bag by Ted Jayson in the style of Ken Scott and a Southern banded horn by Edwin McDilda with strap by Annie MacHale. Free shipping. Just a fantastic set! More photos available for serious inquiries. Thank you!

THIS IS AN ATTRACTIVE CONTEMPORARY RECREATION OF A CLASSIC LATE FLINTLOCK PERIOD KENTUCKY STYLE LONG RIFLE, CIRCA 1820. THE .45 CALIBER RIFLED BARREL IS UNSIGNED. HOWEVER, THE INSIDE OF THE LOCK PLATE IS STAMPED R. HAMM AND THE INSIDE OF THE PATCH BOX IS STAMPED R. SOUTHGATE. BOTH RUSS HAMM AND ROYLAND SOUTHGATE ARE KNOWN TO HAVE BEEN MAKERS OF CONTEMPORARY MUZZLE LOADERS, BARRELS AND OTHER PARTS DURING THE PERIOD AFTER WW2 AND INTO THE SEVENTIES. SO, ONE CAN CONCLUDE THAT THIS FINE RIFLE IS AROUND FIFTY YEARS OLD...THE 42" BARREL IS ONLY 13/16" ACROSS THE FLATS. THE BORE IS EXCELLENT WITH NO ISSUES. WONDERFUL, PRECISE, ADJUSTABLE DOUBLE SET TRIGGERS. THE NICELY FIGURED FULL LENGTH MAPLE STOCK HAS A LENGTH OF PULL OF 14". THIS RIFLE WEIGHS JUST 8 POUNDS AND IS SO WELL BALANCED THAT IT FEELS MUCH LIGHTER. THE TANG MOUNTED REAR SIGHT AND NAVAL MOTIF AT THE TOP OF THE WRIST ARE UNUSUAL. OVERALL FINE CONDITION WITH NO ISSUES. WONDERFUL ARCHITECTURE WITH FINE AGED FIT AND FINISH. LOOKS LIKE IT COULD BE 200 YEARS OLD! WISH I KNEW WHO MADE IT. BET THIS RIFLE IS A TACK DRIVER WITH THE RIGHT LOAD. HAVE SEEN ENOUGH OF THESE CONTEMPORARY MADE LONG RIFLES TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AMATEUR AND PROFESSIONAL WORK...THIS ONE LOOKS LIKE IT WAS MADE BY A HIGHLY SKILLED GUNSMITH AND ARTISAN. ANY INPUT AS TO MAKER WOULD BE APPRECIATED. $1250, PLUS POSTAGE AND INSURANCE. FOR MORE INFO CALL ED DURING BUSINESS HOURS EST AT 603-325-5828
