Plain Southern Rifle

This is my rendition of a rifle featured in "Muzzle Blasts" magazine volume I number 3. It came from the Deep River area of North Carolina. It wasn't my intention to make an exact copy, but rather to capture the flavor of the piece. This rifle has a sugar maple stock with 13 5/8" length of pull and 1/4" cast off with no nose cap or butt plate. The Rice barrel is 32 caliber 42" x 7/8". The lock is a slightly modified Chambers Late Ketland and the triggers are Davis. The rifle features hand forged trigger guard, copper thimbles and brass washers for the lock bolts. The front sight is German silver on a copper base and weighs not quite 8 lbs. The barrel and trigger guard are browned and the lock has been left in the white. The ramrod is hand split hickory. This rifle is new and has been test fired only. Some filing remains to be done on the front sight. Thanks for looking. deepdeep

Left hand .54 cal. full stock Hawken by John Bergmann

Left Hand .54 ca. Walnut full stock Hawken by John Bergmann of Granville Tn. Gitz 37" tapered 1 1/8 to 15/16" .54 cal. barrel, L&R lock with a very short throw, W. Morgan double set triggers, American Black Walnut stock, 2 piece brazed butt plate. Length of pull is 14". I received this rifle from John in March of 2011. Buyer pays actual shipping cost. I'm starting to reduce the size of my collection. This rifle is in excellent condition inside and out. I've had it out to the range 3 times and have fired it less than 40 times. I returned it to John and had him replace the long bar rear sight with a more standard Hawken type sight. The other just didn't look right on the this rifle. John plugged the old dove tail and it gives the rifle kind of an old original look to it. I have plenty of pictures so contact me if you are interested. I will pay shipping to the lower 48 states and some of the shipping to Alaska.
