Peter A. Alexander "Isaac Berlin" longrifle

Isaac Berlin: this .54 caliber rifle is an exacting copy of the famous Isaac Berlin rifle shown in Vol. II of Rifles of Colonial America. Peter Alexander “The Gunsmith of Grenville County” has known, studied, and loved this rifle, made by Isaac Berlin in Easton, Pa. circa 1775, since 1980. In 1981, Peter persuaded George Shumway, the owner, to let him take the original butt plate and trigger guard to Reaves Goehring Jr. to have copies made. He made 4 or 5 copies of the original gun. This one uses the last set of butt plate & trigger guard taken from the original rifle. This gun is unfired.

Early Christian Springs, PA. Style Rifle by K. Moors in .54

This rifle is by Ken Moors of Edenton, N.C. Ken likes the early Christian Springs style guns and he did a fine job with this one as usual. The lock is a early Germanic style by Chambers. The barrel is a "C" weight 38" long Colerain in .54 caliber. The stock is a moderately figured piece of maple with aged brass hardware. The rifle is carved with griffin behind the cheek. Many of the Moravian guns from this area had animals carved in them during this period. The brass parts exhibit the fine engraving that Ken is known for. The fit, finish and aging on this rifle are all excellent. This rifle started out as one of my kits and Ken did a fine job of adding his own touches to make it a little different. This rifle holds and balances very well. I have sold several of Ken's guns in the past and the new owners have been very pleased with the quality of the work and the accuracy. Weight is 8 lbs. Pull is 14". More pictures can be found at http://claysmithguns.com/moors4.htm

English Stalking Rifle

Offered for sale is an English Stalking Rifle in 54 caliber with a 31 inch barrel length. This is considered to be an English style Jaeger used by gentlemen of the period to hunt game is the 1760's. The highly figured English walnut stock is fitted with steel components and all surfaces are highly engraved. The touch hole appears to be gold plated. The wrist of the rifle is beautifully checkered in 18th century style. The rifle is signed by J. Krechel of Saylorsburg, which I assume to be the builder. If you know the builder and care to share some information about him, I would greatly appreciate that. The rifle is in excellent condition and does have some light handling marks. I have never carried the rifle or hunted with it in the field. Price does not include shipping or packaging.
