Lancaster Style Rifle By Robert Ambright in .50 caliber

This is another fine rifle by Bob Ambright of Eagle River, Wisconsin. This one is a Lancaster, PA. style. The barrel is a Colerain 38" swamped in .50 caliber with an aged finish. The lock is a large Siler with aged finish and there is a touch hole liner. Very nicely done early style single trigger. The stock is a nicely figured piece of curly maple with brass hardware and is stained a honey golden color. The carving is very well done consisting of raised and incised with silver wire accents. There is a small bark inclusion on the right forend near the rear thimble. (see pictures) Not a problem, just adds to the caricature of the rifle. The fit and finish is excellent. There gun is dated 2012 but appears new, no dents or dings. The frizzen is smooth with no wear. Bore is mint. The rear sight is 12" down the barrel for a clear sight picture even with my aging eyesight. The deep cheek, light weight and slight castoff make this a very comfortable gun to shoulder. Bob does an excellent job and for the price, this is a great gun. Weight is 7 lbs. Pull is 13 1/2". More pictures can be found at http://claysmithguns.com/ambright2.htm

Full cherry wood stock as per the original. Brass facated trigger guard was cast from the original and has an early acorn finial. Brass ramrod ferrils, buttplate and sideplate washers were fabricated from sheet.

Ron Ehlert Buck's County Rifle

This rifle was completed in January 1987. It is the 28th custom rifle that my father built. You can clearly see what a master artisan he was that early in his career. This rifle is .50 caliber. The overall length is 57 1/2 inches, length of pull is 14 inches, and the barrel is 42 inches. Beautiful figure on the stock and wire inlay adorn the length of this rifle. The barrel has intricate bands at the breach and muzzle. This rifle does have a thumb piece inlay with the original owner's initials engraved. According to the owner, this rifle has never been fired, except by my father when sighting-in the rifle. I have more pictures that I can send to interested parties, including full length photos. I will ship in a locked aluminum case that must be returned to me. $8,000 or best offer, plus shipping.

Youth Trade Gun in .50 smoothbore

This is a scaled down version of my type G trade gun. It is approximately 2/3 scale. The barrel is custom made by Colerain and is 32" long oct-round in .50 caliber smoothbore. The barrel has been blued. The lock is by Quality Locks, Inc. which are sold by Caywood Guns. It is a high quality lock, well made and has a fast action and throws a shower of sparks. There is a touch hole liner in it as well to speed up the ignition time. The maple stock is painted oxide red with typical sheet brass hardware. This gun is comfortable for many smaller adults as well. I have this gun at a highly discounted price due to the fact that when drilling the ramrod hole, the bit came out the bottom. I repaired it by gluing a new piece of wood on the bottom. The new piece can not be seen under the paint and it is as sound as when it was one piece. Weight is 4 lbs. Pull is 12 1/4".

Lancaster Style Rifle in .50 cal.

This is one of Jim Chamber's Lancaster kits that was assembled several years ago. I just took it in on trade. It was well assembled and finished. It has been used but well cared for. The barrel is a Getz 44" in .50 caliber with a coned muzzle. The stock is a nice moderately figured maple stained to a pleasing dark honey color. The lock is a Chamber's Golden Age style. The gun looks almost new. No dents or dings to speak of at all. Moderate wear on the frizzen. Overall a very nice rifle of the Rev War period or slightly later. Considering the kits go for about $1000 with shipping, this is a good deal. Weight is 9 1/2 lbs. Pull is 14". More pictures can be found at http://claysmithguns.com/guns_on_hand.htm

York Rifle by Brad Emig

This rifle and another one I have in .40 caliber are almost twins. They have slightly different engraving on the patchbox and this one does not have an inlay on the cheek. 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
