Item No.: 9313 Price : $1,350.00
Item : FINE, EARLY STYLE CONTEMPORARY FLINTLOCK LONGRIFLE
Description :
This is a Contemporary Flintlock Long Rifle made and signed by "P. Harris" on the top flat of the barrel. It is .50 caliber with a 42" tapered and flared (swamped) barrel. This is an early style rifle with a wooden patchbox, a wide butt, and simple incise carving. This is a rifle of the Revolutionary War era or perhaps even as early as the French & Indian War. Such a rifle would have been right at home in the hands of one of Daniel Morgan's Riflemen. This rifle is in very fine condition. The barrel retains 98% of its browned finish, with just a couple of small scratches from use. The lock is finished bright. The brass furniture is developing a nice bronze patina. The lock works perfectly and delivers a good shower of sparks. The bore is excellent. The curly maple stock is stained a dark brown and is in fine condition with nicely figured wood. It has seen use in the field and shows some small dings and scratches from that use. I do notice that the rear sight is set pretty far to the left and looks like it has been epoxied in place. The sights may need a little tweaking. This is a beautiful, early style Contemporary Kentucky Long Rifle. Stock no. 24845
