York Rifle (J.P. Beck Style) in .50 caliber

This is a York rifle in the style of J.P. Beck made by S. Zdawczynski. I've never heard of this builder but he did a really fine job assembling this rifle. It started as a Chamber's York kit. The fit of metal to wood is very tight. The patchbox lid is tight to the stock and is well shaped. The lock is a large Siler. Stock is a nice piece of curly maple. The straight tapered barrel is probably by Rice and is 42" in .50 caliber. It is held to the stock by four brass wedges. It has been used but very little and well cared for. Very little wear on the frizzen and no dents or dings in the wood. The owner says it shoots dead on with 65 grains FFF, a .490 ball and .0015 patch. Weight is 8 lbs 11 ozs. Pull is 14".

Early Christian Springs, PA. Style Rifle by Ken Moors

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

Lehigh Valley Rifle, ca. 1820

This rifle is on the short & light weight side w/ a 37" swamped, full-octagon custom .52 caliber rifled barrel by Bob Hoyt. The stock is black walnut, stump wood w/ good grain through the butt and wrist area and decorated with folk carving. The lock is a 5" long round-faced English model by Jim Chambers. The brass mounts and brass and silver inlays I largely made myself, so there's not much in the way of catalog parts in this rifle (less the lock, of course). The patch box finial is based on the "fluke" blade of a halberd pictured in a book on American Revolutionary War weapons. The cheek piece extension is bone (cow, I believe). The rifle overall has a mildly antiqued finish. Include $50.00 extra for shipping.
