|Southwest Virginia or Central Kentucky ca 1825|
This is an unrestored, attic condition rifle from Southwestern Virginia or central Kentucky. The patchbox is neatly designed with 5 piercings and nicely engraved as is the 8 point silver star on the cheek piece. Engraved silver escutcheons on the forestock are for decoration only; one missing. Original to the rifle, the lock was converted to percussion and the barrel cut from the breech.
Three in-period gunsmith repairs were accomplished to keep the rifle in working order. First the barrel tang was elongated to sturdy the wrist area, then the trigger guard was replaced, and finally a decorative plate was added to the fore arm as a result of saddle wear. Barrel length is 37.5 inches and a .45 cal bore. PLEASE VISIT WWW.AspenShadeLTD.com FOR MORE ANTIQUE KENTUCKY RIFLES, ACCOUTREMENTS, FURNITURE, AND DECORATIVE ARTS.
