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.

Jud Brennan Rifle

Words can not describe the quality and the beauty of this rifle. and pictures do not do it justice. For those of you who collect flintlocks when I say the name Jud Brennan that"s all I really need to say. For those just starting or thinking about collecting flintlocks, there are thousands of builders out there offering prices of a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands. Jud Brennan may be the finest builder in the world. If he is not he would be in the top select few. To have him build a rifle equal to the quality and workmanship of this fine piece would take many months, perhaps years and lots of bucks. I do not profess to knowing Mr. Brennan's production schedule or his price points. I do know he is well known in the art of building fine flintlocks. Please note the beautiful octagon barrel, rifle is dressed with lots of silver and brass highly engraved This rifle is featured here ://contemporarymakers.blogspot/2012/12/jud-brennan-rifle.html here you can see about 20 additional pictures as well as some additional written information. No waiting here, lets get together and I will ship it to you immediately.
