Percussion rifle

This rifle features a 38" Green Mountain 50 caliber barrel and curly maple stock with brass furniture. L&R percussion lock with L&R double set double phase triggers. Hand cut sideplate, toeplate and patchbox. Light engraving on the patchbox and lockplate. Sterling silver wire inlay around the tang, comb and behind and below the cheekpiece and a man in moon inlay above the cheekpiece. Also has sterling silver wire inlay around the tennon pins in a wings design. New condition. This rifle came from the shop of the late Frank Bartlett. He had installed the barrel and buttplate and shaped the buttstock. I purchased it from Dixie Gun Works when the late Hunter Kirkland had purchased several other guns from his shop that were all in various stages of assembly. I have been building rifles since 1979 and have been the primary gunsmith at Dixie Gun Works for the past 32 years. Price does not include $25.00 shipping

North West or Mackinaw Gun -SPF, Thank You

Here's a North West Gun, 20 bore, 36" barrel. It has a touch hole bushing, sparks extremely well and enjoys instant ignition. Being not too long she's great for grouse and pheasant, she's light and swings very well. It's a North Star West kit built by a collector of Northwest Guns. The assembly and finish was done perfectly. Northstar West kits have become rather expensive in recent years. This one is already finished, and priced lower than a kit. Slightly used. Needs a new ramrod, otherwise it's a like a new gun. Now Sold, Pending Funds

Christian Springs Rifle by K. Moors in .58 cal.

Another fine rifle 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 Chambers Deluxe Siler Gunmakers lock and Ken custom shaped the plate. The barrel is a "D" weight 37" long Colerain in .58 caliber. The stock is a highly figured piece of maple with aged brass hardware. The rifle is raised carved with silver wire accents behind the cheek. The brass parts exhibit the fine engraving that Ken is known for. The fit, finish and aging on this rifle are all excellent. The pictures can tell more than I can as to how fine a gun this is. 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. 6 oz. Pull is 13 5/8".

Fancy Virginia Barn Rifle by C. Smith **SOLD**

This is a typical Barn rifle, no buttplate or entry thimble, except it has extra features. The wrist has been checkered with brass pins in the squares. There is a raised molding along the ramrod channel. The thimbles are hand made and the nosecap is a chevroned poured pewter style. The Chamber's Virginia lock has been lightly engraved as well as the breech of the barrel. The barrel is a Green Mountain 44" swamped barrel in .50 caliber. The wood is fairly plain maple with dark reddish stain. Has double incised lines down the lower sides of the butt. The brass trigger guard is cast from an 1806 Va. Manufactory 1st model rifle. This rifle has had only 10 rounds through it during sighting in. Very accurate, well balanced and points well. This would make a great hunting rifle and a few dents and dings would add to the aged look. Weight is 7 lbs. Pull is 13 7/8". More pictures can be found at
