Nicholas Beyer is probably the most prolific “Golden Age” gunsmith in Pennsylvania. He worked with John Philip Beck until Beck’s death in 1811 and then developed a wonderful variety of decorative rifles using Pennsylvania Dutch motifs; carving boldly executed roccoco designs in his stocks, and engraving masterfully designed details in his patchboxes and inlays.
This example remains in wonderful original condition including an old brass repair to the wrist. Made without a patchbox to save money, the owner took excellent care of the rifle, yes rifle! The 43 inch full octagon .50 cal barrel is rifled. One can assume the owner was rather frugal but required a rifled barrel; the most expensive element of the gun. This is an opportunity to own a well executed example of Beyer’s work which includes some carving. Amazingly the rifle was never converted to percussion; it remains in original flintlock condition.
