Information about A N Jackson is scarce. By the examples in existance it appears he worked around Chambersburg, then Virginia, and finally North Carolina. He probably worked as a journeyman, never owned land, and never had to pay taxes. He was a good workman. This rifle has charcteristics of the Catawba Valley School. it is in very good condition with beautiful curly maple, what appears to be the original lock in unaltered flintlock condition, and nice incised carving. A longer tang was added to the barrel to increase strength through the wrist area, although I see no cracks. Barrel length is 41.5 inches, about .50 CAL. A pleasing North Carolina rifle in good condition with nice curly maple and a strong signature. Please visit my website www.AspenShadeLTD.com for more Kentucky rifles.
