This a great example of a later period Lancaster flintlock rifle and it is in superb condition. Nothing not to like on this one! The Gumpf makers didn't go over the top on fancy adornments for their guns, but they knew what fine architecture is, and added just enough refinements to make an elegant gun.

Form follows function, and Lancaster rifles are a perfect example. They not only feel "just right" when you put one to your shoulder, the architecture is clean and attractive.
