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

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.

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
