Contemporary Flintlock Rifle - $650
« on: February 06, 2020, 03:39:48 AM »
Here is another contemporary that came to us unfinished.  We reshaped some of the wood, put a nice finish on it, and a new lock from Dixie.  I don't know the barrel make, but it is 42" long and about a .44 caliber.

How good is the bore? Land to Land measurement?

The bore is somewhat shiny and the rifling well-defined.  The grooves are a little darker, possibly from the slightest corrosion.   The finish on the barrel has the lightest corrosion , also. The bore measures .44 across the lands.

I have not fired this rifle.  I have sparked the lock and it works, although it has a giant flint.

Overall length is almost 57 1/2" and the rifle weighs just over nine and a half pounds.

This rifle has a beautiful fore stock molding and a butt stock molding, also. The patch box release and spring are primitive, but they work. The stock is fairly straight grain and could easily be Birch or something like it.

This rifle is still available.  I marked it "sold pending funds" briefly yesterday afternoon, but the buyer found something else that he liked better.  John

The pull is about 13 1/2" long, measuring to the center of the butt plate.  There's a bit of play in the trigger so I cannot get a perfect measurement.

I'll pay shipping costs to you and you'll pay about $35 to $40 to return my hard case.
