|.62 Caliber Original trade gun, Manton 1833 Lock|
Mid Nineteenth Century trade gun likely manufactured by Belgium or England using available parts. Features a 37" .610 barrel. I believe this is a choked barrel, since a .600 ball will not pass down past three inches, but after five inches the barrel ''opens up" at least that is how it feels with the cleaning rod and .58 Jag and thick patch. Lock is MAGNIFICANT a real gem. It is an 1835 WR IV Carbine Lock with GR crown on lock. Features sliding safety and "Hidden frizzen" spring which operates off a transfer bar to the mainspring. The lock was made by Charles Manton grand son of Joseph. Has walnut stock, reduced Brown Bess furniture, Iron ram rod, Baker style side-plate, and an engraved mid-1800 percussion style butt tang engraving. I had this up on Track for +$2200, will take $1500 shipping prepaid. I proved it with 120 grains and two .58 caliber patched balls just so you know.
|Swivel Kentucky Rifle - Percussion - Signed "J. Lord"|
Here is your chance to add a great swivel rifle to your collection - don't miss out! It is in excellent condition, nicely marked "J. Lord" on one barrel and the town "Orwigsburg" on the lock panel. He worked with Boyer in Berks. Interestingly, it came out of the collection of Cecil B. DeMille, according to an old paper in the patchbox and the account of the 90-year-old man who owned it before me. Great wood panels, nice architecture and inlays, always percussion, cool swivel release is integral with triggerguard.
|Antique Rifling Machine|
This is an awesome rifling tool. The handle and mounting block are wood, but the tube is all metal. Feels like 1" in 48" and it has eight grooves, indexed on the fixed wheel. Over four feet long and weighs over 50 pounds. You'll have to build a crate, if you want it shipped, or meet me at a show.
|Restocked T. Volger rifle|
This rifle appears to be T. Volger hardware/barrel/tang/trigger etc that has been restocked. It has a 44 inch barrel that is approximately 40-41 caliber. The barrel is slightly swamped (.910 at the breech, .797 at the smallest mid-section and .898 at the muzzle. Fancy set triggers with curl on tip of front trigger and a partial curl behind front trigger. Lock was an original flint that has been converted to percussion.
$995 plus shipping/insurance, interesting trades considered.
|Flintlock Kentucky Rifle - Signed "A+Schweitzer" |
This longrifle is beautifully carved behind the cheekpiece along with incise lines in front of the patchox and cheekpiece plus an elegant two-line moulding on the forestock. The top barrel flat is nicely signed in script, "A + Schweitzer." It has a 43 1/2" barrel with a large, rifled bore. Wonderful engraved patchbox, toe plate, and side plate. Also, engraved silver inlays on cheekpiece (half-moon) and thumbpiece with initials. Re-converted flintlock with outstanding "Dreppert" marked lockplate. Fancy curly maple full stock with a couple of small pieces of wood replaced/repaired around barrel tang area. This magnificent rifle is pictured in the 2nd patchbox book and at least one of Whisker's other books. It is a great example of Abraham Schweitzer's Chambersburg work with a connection to his earlier Lancaster work in the marked lockplate.

This classic rifle is a great example of the Upper Susquehanna region with its unique traits and characteristics. Typically unsigned as is this example. However the strong regional influence is evident in the unique, pierced, 4 piece brass patchbox; full brass comb plate; full length brass toe plate; full length fore stock wear plate and classic butt stock architecture. This is a full stock curly maple rifle with a 38 inch full octagon barrel, double-set triggers, a silver wrist inlay and a silver stag inlay in the cheek. This is obviously a very nice rifle for a most modest investment. For a few additional photos, please visit our website and go to CURRENT SPECIALS. www.cabincreek.net
