This fine quality contemporary longrifle is stocked in curly maple and trimmed in burnished brass furniture. The rifle has a Germanic influence with a wide buttplate and triggerguard with curled grip rail. The raised carving on the stock is accented with silver wire inlay and the furniture features a patchbox with nickel silver panels worked into the design. The .54 caliber Colerain octagon-to-round barrel is mated to a Germanic style flintlock with brass pan. Fit, finish, engraving, raised carving, and silver wire inlay work are all very well executed. The barrel is initial by contemporary builder Jason Hogarth. This rifle is used and has a few marks on the frizzen and a few small handling marks.

The heart of the rifle is a .54 caliber by 38" octagon-to-round Colerain barrel. The barrel is tapered octagon for the last 15" at the breech with a single wedding band to round. The .54 caliber bore is cut rifled with six lands and radius grooves with a 1 in 56" twist for a tightly patched round ball. The bore is bright and clean, it has been very well maintained.

The highly figured maple stock is trimmed in burnished brass furniture. The buttstock is fitted with a tall, wide, buttplate is early longrifle fashion.The toe of the stock is shaped with a raised molding that creates a step at the wrist in Germanic fashion. The lock panels are framed with a raised border with a beaver tail finial. The rear barrel pin is surrounded by a hand engraved nickel silver oval inlay with silver wire inlaid accents.

Trigger reach is 13-1/4" to fit today's average size shooter. Weight is 7.6 pounds.

The buttstock is fitted with a pierced patchbox with brass and nickel silver worked into the head, and side panels. The patchbox is neatly hand engraved and shaded with decorative scrolls. The patchbox door head is framed with an inlaid silver wire border. The patchbox is correctly mounted with steel screws and the screws are all fitted with the slots neatly aligned. The patchbox has a button release on the buttplate comb. Press the button to release the patchbox door, revealing a deep cut cavity for storing flints and other shooting accessories. Metal to wood fit is excellent with tight inletting. A raised molding extends from the toe to the rear of the triggerguard.

This rifle patchbox is very tightly fitted. During dry winter months the wood will shrink very slightly which presses the side panels into the metal door, which does not compress. If the door is opened in winter it will not easily close, as the panels sit just inside the edge of the door and the catch will not engage correctly. This phenomenon is very common in dry climates. In milder climates this should not be a problem.

The buttplate comb is shaped with three broad flats. The patchbox release button is positioned just ahead of the heel. The buttplate comb screw is neatly fitted with the slot aligned with the barrel. The cheek is angled to the rear, to recoil away from your face, an ingenious feature found on better rifles.

The wrist of the rifle is fitted with an oval wrist inlay engraved with the initials D.J. M.. The lock panels taper widest at the rear in early longrifle fashion. The panels have a raised border that transitions into decorative scrolls around the flared thumbnail tang of the breech. The top flat of the barrel is initialed J.C.H. by the builder.

The toe of the rifle is fitted with a decorative brass and nickel silver toeplate. The toeplate has a pierced oval inset with silver wire inlay C scrolls. The Germanic style triggerguard is neatly burnished bright.

The ramrod entry pipe has a English influence with a round body and short tapered skirt. A small horn or bone inlay is worked into the raised and incised carving around the entry pipe skirt. A decorative molding extends the length of the ramrod channel. A black horn muzzle cap is fitted to protect the end grain of the stock.

This well made rifle is fitted with a classic European style trade lock, typical of longrifles from the regions with strong trade to continental Europe. This flintlock is a refined early style lock, with a pointed tail on the lock plate. A decorative molding has been filed across the lock plate ahead of the tail. The flat faced plate features chamfered edges, to echo the octagon theme of the barrel. The pan on this lock is brass to better resist corrosion, and is shaped with and integral bridle to support the frizzen screw.

The graceful goose neck cock, sculptured frizzen, and the fancy frizzen spring with concealed mounting screw and feather finial, all reflect the artistic flare of the European lock makers. We recommend using our #Flint-ENG-6 best English 3/4" flints, hand knapped by Mr. Tom Fuller.

The single trigger is shaped with a wide curled face, and decorative scroll back. The stainless steel vent liner is positioned high above the bottom of the pan, for fastest ignition. Fitted with a deep internal cone this liner is designed to bring the main charge close to the priming charge, producing fast ignition.

The side panel is fitted with a sideplate shaped with sweeping curves and hand engraved with a decorative border. The domed head lock bolts are fitted with the slots neatly aligned with the barrel.

Raised and incised carving extends into the square cheek of the buttstock. The cheek is fitted with a nickel silver oval inlay engraved BAM with a nickel silver wire inlay border. Beautifully raised carved C scrolls extend from the rear of the cheek. The carving is well defined with smooth backgrounds, the sign of a skilled hand and sharp tools.
