Kentucky Rifle by A.W. Lenhart in .45 caliber

This is a very nice little rifle by A.W. Lenhart which was made a number of years ago but in excellent condition. I'm not familiar with the maker but he did a fine job on this gun blending together the parts he used. The barrel is a Douglas 13/16" barrel that is 35" long in .45 caliber. The lock is a Durs Egg style by L&R which has a bit of engraving. The stock is a well figured piece of curly maple with nice raised and incised carving. The mounts are brass with engraving on all but the thimbles and nosecap. The patchbox is a nice style and has the maker's name engraved no the lid. It has a pry open type lid which I have adjusted to work properly. The barrel pins are surrounded by nice diamond inlays to protect the wood if the pins are removed. (A good idea if you like to remove your barrel to clean it.) The trigger is a single set style by L&R and will fire set or unset. This would make a great gun for a youth or lady due to the size or a nice gun for the guy who is tired of lugging around a heavy gun. The rear sight is set 12" forward to make the sight picture very clear for older eyes. All of the aging on this rifle is naturally acquired through use. The wood is clean, no dents or dings. The only scrapes are a couple on the barrel next to the lock, probably from screwdriver slippage when changing flints, very minor. Overall a great little gun that would be fine for hunting or target work. Weight 7 lbs. Pull 13". More pictures can be found at http://claysmithguns.com/guns_on_hand.htm

Canoe gun

This gun is of no particular style; but is something that could have been built by a "shade tree gunsmith/blacksmith to suit a particular need or desire by a customer! I call it a canoe gun - because it is short and easily handled in the confined space of one! Plain trigger. It is a .58cal., Barrel, by Bob Hoyt, tapers from around 1 and 3/16" to 7/8" and is about 27" long - including the breech plug. The twist is 1:48" with lands narrower than grooves: This will shoot a Great Plains type bullet as well as a round ball! It has a 2" wide, flat, buttplate to ease recoil! There is a provision for a sling swivel on the under rib, but I have not installed one. I built this rifle last year and it has only been shot to sight it at 25yds.! The price is $1470.00 - which includes shipping! More pictures are available.
