Ohio Rifle Collectors
« on: December 04, 2019, 08:19:06 AM »
Friends, I call upon any members here who collect Ohio-style, or “Vincent” type, half-stocked percussion muzzle-loading rifles. I have several questions on original implementations and accouterments furnished and used with such arms. If anyone knowledgeable on the subject would like to “strike up” a conversation, I’d be “all ears” as it were. I am especially interested in ramrods, their fixtures and and tools, of these type rifles.

Thank you so much, and have a great day! :)

-Smokey

If you do Facebook, also look up the AOLRC page and look for posts from Bill Reynolds. "He's the man"when it comes to Vincent rifles!

I'm not sure where you live but you might consider a field trip to the Log Cabin Shop in Lodi Ohio.  The collection is open to the public and is probably the largest collection of Ohio rifles there is. If memory serves me (which is asking a lot) there are several Vincents on the wall.  Lots of good stuff to look at and if you promise to be good they might even let you hold one. They are also some fine folks.  Best regards Jack
