Tennessee Mountain Rifle in .32 caliber

This is a nice little Tennessee style rifle made many years ago and shows signs of some use. There are nicks and dings but nothing major. The stock is plain maple stained to a dark brown. The lock is by Hadaway. The barrel is 13/16" straight by 42" long and is either by Green Mountain or Douglas. Both are great barrels. The triggers are double set by Davis and will fire set or unset. The toe of the stock has a forged nail and the top of the butt has a piece of antler to reduce the wear. There is a small chip in the toe which a little stain would hide. The bore is excellent and should be a great small game gun. Weight is 7 lbs. 12 oz. Pull is 13.5". More pictures of this guns and others can be found at http://www.claysmithguns.com/guns_on_hand.htm

Early English Style Fowler by K. Moors *Sold pending funds*

This is another fine gun by Ken Moors. It is an English style fowler of the 1760-1770 period. The barrel is an oct-round Colerain in 20 gauge and is 44" long. The wood is a nicely figured curly maple stained to a pleasing reddish brown. Many English import fowlers were stocked in maple as hardwoods in England were becoming scarce so a lot of lumber was imported from America. The lock is a Chamber's Virginia style. The engraving and carving is very well done. The gun has an aged appearance even though it is new. Overall this is a very well made fowler with a very nice balance. Ken's work should be priced higher due to the quality and I'm sure the prices will go up as more people collect his work. Now is the time to get one, they don't last long once I get them. Weight is 7 lbs. 14 oz. Pull is 14". More pictures and other guns can be found at http://www.claysmithguns.com/guns_on_hand.htm

Transitional longrifle

62 caliber transitional longrifle with a little Lancaster style, not really based on any one rifle just my interpretation. It has has a very figured piece of hard maple wrapped around a 42" d weight colerain barrel in .62 caliber with round groove rifling. Sparks are provided with a tuned and slightly modified Davis colonial flintlock and a set of Davis triggers. This rifle has a mix of raised and incised carving pretty much all over in the usual places, again not really based on any one rifle but some of my own design and some ideas from originals. I slightly aged this rifle to give it some patina. Trigger pull is 13 7/8 to the front trigger and it weighs just under 9 1/2lbs and is very comfortable to shoot! Also the sliding patch box is a piece of moose antler... I thought it was a neat idea and decided to give it a try! If the antler patch box doesn't suite you I can make a wood one to match the rest of the rifle. I have more pics if interested as well. Thanks! Kyle Schumacher

Southern Mountain Poorboy

I am offering this Southern style Poorboy that I finished building this past March. The stock is Red Maple with a hand rubbed oil finish. The Colerain barrel is 15/16 inches across the flats, 38 inches long, and .54 caliber. It has just enough weight to settle in when sighting, without feeling muzzle heavy. Drop to heel is 3 1/2 inches inches, and the length of pull is 13 1/2 inches. It has 1/4 inch cast off and comes up comfortably with the sights in line. I have fired it a few times to sight it in horizontally. The sights have been left a little high so the owner can adjust them to his or her liking. The lock is a Jim Chambers Late Ketland, and the triggers are modified from a Davis kit. Parts made by myself include the sights, sideplates, toeplate, and trigger guard. I also hand inlet the barrel channel, ramrod groove, and drilled the ramrod hole. All hardware is iron, and I selected a rounded buttplate to go with the soft southern lines. All screws have been fire blued. I am happy to provide more detailed photos upon request, and answer any questions you might have.

60's or 70's contempoary

This is a beautiful contemporary rifle, probably built in the late 60's or 70's (based on lock used). It has a Shoults Lock made by Chet Shoults. Bob Roller said that "In 1970 I revamped it to a linked mainspring". Since this one does not have a linked mainspring I assume this lock was made prior to 1970. Bob says parts for these locks are available and I can provide the contact info for them. The rifle is signed on the barrel W H and has nicely done engraving on either side of the initials. The side-plate and tang are also engraved. Well done carving on wrist, butt-stock, moulding on the forearm. I am not sure what barrel was used, I have not pulled it out to see. The fore stock has been repaired about 4 inches in front of entry pipe. It appears to have been broken when someone tried to remove the barrel. Price is $1,695.00 plus shipping/ins. I will have the rifle with me at the Knoxville TN longrifle show this Friday and Saturday. Email me for more photos.
