Nice rifle, do you know who made it?
« on: September 02, 2022, 09:29:15 PM »
I really like this rifle and the PB in particular.  This is a picture from the CLA show and  Im wondering if someone here recognizes it, and curious who the maker is.




Just asking, thanks,
Jeff

PS the picture quality is better in the original post under Pictures from the CLA show.

I like the lock.  At first it looks like a Chambers round face but the frizzed spring, cock and plate look like they are Chambers early Ketland reworked into a round face lock.

Anyone else think this?

I also would like to know more about this rifle - and see more photos if possible. It looks like a variation on RCA #42, with the box and what little carving I can see. Would really enjoy the maker sharing their story on this fine piece. Thanks for posting, Bob

Mitch,
Thanks for the response. It somehow got passed me.
Sorry for my late acknowledgment.
