|1766 Charleville Infantry Musket |
This reproduction of a 1766 Charleville Infantry Musket has a .69 calibre, 44 3/4 inch long, round barrel that is made of tempered seamless carbon steel (type:BS970 no.080M40) with a threaded breech plug. The lock is made with strong durable springs and has a case-hardened frizzen cover (hammer) that throws good sparks. The Charlieville musket's total length is 60 inches and weighs 10 pounds. Comes with bayonet. This is my reenactment rifle, so it has some rust, marks to look authentic. It could use good detailing, more pictures available just ask. Will trade for quilled shoulder bag.

|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
|Antique Half Stock Percussion Rifle|
The owner of this rifle stated that it has been in his family for several generations and came out of the Fairmont, WV area. It is in exceptional condition for it's age. The barrel is 40" long and tapers from 15/16" at the breech to 7/8" at the muzzle. The bore is clean and shootable. The makers initials "B. E." are engraved on the top flat. The front sight has an ivory blade. The rib and the three thimbles are all tight. It has a pewter nosecap. The stock is maple with a little curl. There are the usual dents and dings from handling over the years but no breaks, cracks or repairs at all. The hardware is brass. There is a nice German silver inlay in the cheek and on the bottom of the forend. The lock is by Goulcher and is the typical hardware store variety without a half cock notch. It has an unusual cutout behind the drum, might have been made for a patent type breech originally. The lock and triggers function well. It has a new nipple installed and the nipple threads are tight. The triggers must be set to cock the hammer. It has the original striped ramrod that has a jag tip carved on the lower tip. It comes with the original mold and two original tins of Winchester caps. One tin is open and only about half of the caps remain. The second tin is unopened. Overall a very nice gun in excellent condition compared to most of the half stocks I've seen. More pictures can be found at http://claysmithguns.com/antique_30cal.htm
|Buffalo Robe |
Buffalo Robe with attached thick green blanket. 5 feet long by 4.5 feet wide across the center. This really does the trick on those cold nights. There are 2 small quarter size holes one over each rear leg that can be stitched. My grandfather made this for me years ago, but I don't have time to go to rendezvous anymore so my loss is your gain. Will consider trade for eastern woodland quilled bag.
