Left Hand York Rifle by R Ambright

This is another finely made rifle by Robert Ambright of Eagle River, WI. This is a very well made rifle with very tight inletting with clean carving and engraving. The barrel is a Green Mountain that has been custom turned to an oct-round shape. It is 38" long in a .45 caliber. The lock is a large Siler. The trigger is handmade. The iron parts have been aged and have a nice matte grey color. The stock is a beautiful piece of curly maple stained with aqua-fortis to bring out the figure. There are two age checks at the toe on the right side. Very minor and don't seem to go in far. The hardware is brass and is more typical of the Lancaster region whereas the carving, especially the tang area is more York styling. Not an unusual combination due to the close proximity of the two areas. The rifle holds and balances very well. Weight is 8 lbs 13 oz. Pull is 14". More pictures can be found at

Beautifully crafted Smooth Bore Fowler in 28ga.

Beautifully crafted smooth bore Fowler in 28 ga. (SOLD PENDING FUNDS) The Barrels are 44" in Length, octagon shaped at the Breech transitioning to a round taper providing smooth handling and balance. The quick and reliable ignition is provided by a Chambers round face English style lock. Brass hardware, stocked in American black walnut and a hand rubbed oil finish. Early style checkering in the wrist with carvings in the tang and rear entry thimble area. The front spider sight is cast from silver and inlaid into the barrel. A typical load for this rifle would have consisted of 55 grains of FFg black powder and a .540 diameter round ball wrapped in a .015 thick piece of linen cloth. Another load that was used during the revolutionary and civil war era was what was referred to as a Buck and Ball load consisting of a full caliber round ball combined with Three buckshot pellets. This was designed to improve the probability of a hit @ close range.
