New England Rifle

I don't see many New England rifles being made these days so I decided to try my hand at it. I am hoping there are some current or former New Englanders who might like such a rifle. This one has a 50 cal., 42", "B" weight swamped barrel made by Rice. The stock is cherry. The lock is a Chamber's Classic Ketland. Trigger pull is 14". Rear sight is 11.5" from the breech. The butt plate is 5" H x 1 7/8" W. The balance point is just to the rear of the rear sight, the ideal location. I have some high resolution pictures available upon request. Thanks for looking.

Canoe gun

This gun is of no particular style; but is something that could have been built by a "shade tree gunsmith/blacksmith to suit a particular need or desire by a customer! I call it a canoe gun - because it is short and easily handled in the confined space of one! Plain trigger. It is a .58cal., Barrel, by Bob Hoyt, tapers from around 1 and 3/16" to 7/8" and is about 27" long - including the breech plug. The twist is 1:48" with lands narrower than grooves: This will shoot a Great Plains type bullet as well as a round ball! It has a 2" wide, flat, buttplate to ease recoil! There is a provision for a sling swivel on the under rib, but I have not installed one. I built this rifle last year and it has only been shot to sight it at 25yds.! The price is $1470.00 - which includes shipping! More pictures are available.
