Offered for sale is a Black Tiger Stripe 1776 contemporary build flintlock rifle in the Lancaster design. The 36 inch 54 caliber octagon barrel is set in a unique flamed tiger stripe maple stock that changes color depending on whether it is in the shade or in the sunshine. In the shade, the stock takes on a darker granite color, while in the sun it looks like a traditional tiger stripe! As well, there are runs of orange flame throughout the wood. I have chosen to accent the wood with minimal relief carving in the butt and only two vines incised along the forestock. All metal features are brass with the exception of the Chambers steel lock and double Davis trigger. Both the lock and the barrel have been browned to bring out the traditional antiqued look. The brass has been embellished with metal engraving. Much care and attention has been given to fit and finish and is in keeping with the asking price of $3,400, which includes free shipping to anywhere in the continental USA.
