This contemporary longrifle is a example of the modern school of longrifles with a late Golden Age influence. The .50 caliber longrifle is stocked in maple with raised carving. The brass furniture is polished to a bright finish, hand engraved, and is mounted with steel screws. The large Siler lock and Colerain straight octagon barrel are finished to a dark brown. The top flat of the barrel is signed E. Mangerie.

The heart of the rifle is a 36" by 7/8" straight octagon .50 caliber Colerain barrel. The bore is rifled with a 1 in 56" twist for a tightly patched round ball with six radius grooves. Colerain rifle barrels are the favorite choice of today's best muzzle loading gun makers, because knowledgeable shooters demand Colerain's accuracy, inside and outside. Founded by two entrepreneurs, Scott Keller and Scott Kelly were tutored by Bob Paris, the famous rifle barrel maker who was first to perfect the technique for production of correct swamped barrels.

The maple fullstock is stained to a dark brown with a reddish undertone. The buttstock is shaped with the drooping lines associated with rifles from the Lehigh Valley. Raised carved C scrolls decorate the transition from wrist to comb. An incised molding from the toe to the triggerguard creates a slimming effect.

Trigger reach is 14" to fit todays average size shooter. Weight is 8.2 pounds with the balance point behind the rear sight.

Here we have a close-up of the brass patchbox installed in the rifle. Well executed with piercings on the head and side panels. The patchbox is decorated with hand engraved scroll and flower designs. The side opening door has a spring catch at the base, press the latch toward the toe to allow the door to open. Beneath the door is a deep cavity for storing flints patches or other shooting accessories.

The brass buttplate is shaped with broad panels with a filed wedding band transition to the comb. A line of raised carving defines the front edge of the comb. The wrist is fitted with a large nickel silver thumbpiece with engraved border.

The lock panels taper widest at the rear in early long gun fashion. A panel of raised carving ending is decorative scrolls surrounds the flared thumbnail tang of the breech.

The barrel is fitted with a flat top rear sight. dovetailed 11" ahead of the breech. A steel blade sight is dovetailed behind the muzzle. The face of the front sight has been fitted with a thin sheet of brass to provide a bright sight picture.

The toe is fitted with a long brass toeplate decorated with hand engraved scrolls. The flat from the toe fades into the bottom of the lock panels. The brightly finished brass triggerguard is shaped with decorative Fluer de Lys finials on both ends and the bow is engraved with flower and vine designs.

The forend is shaped with a raised molding along the ramrod channel. The 3/8" diameter ramrod is fitted with a brass tip with 10-32 threads for loading and cleaning accessories.

The large Siler flint lock is finished to dark brown to match the barrel finish. The lock has a hefty mainspring to provide lots of energy. Use our 3/4" knapped English flints for best performance in this lock, #FLINT-ENG-6.

The double lever double set trigger is adjusted to fire from the set, or unset position. You may cock the lock, or set the trigger in any order. Once set the rifle has a very smooth trigger release. Adjust the screw between the two triggers, inboard to reduce set trigger release pressure, our outboard to require a stronger pressure. The set trigger can provide very light release, perhaps an ounce or two, for accurate aimed shooting during pleasant weather.

A slotted stainless steel vent hole is positioned well above the bottom of the pan, centered on the heat of the flash. If your flint longrifle suffers from that infamous slow whoosh-bang ignition delay, study the work of today's best gun makers, and position your vent well centered on the pan, high above the bottom, to serve as a window on the center of the flash.

The rifle is fitted with a pierced brass sideplate inlet into the side panel. The sideplate is hand engraved with a folk art style with a leaf design across the tail. The domed head lock bolts have been fitted with the slots neatly aligned. Raised carving extends down from the front edge of the comb into the cheek. The rear of the cheek is covered with a raised carved scrolls.

The raised carving that extends down from the front edge of the comb transitions into the front edge of the square cheek. The cheek is fitted with a hand engraved nickel silver flowering star and shaped with a molded edge. Raised carved scrolls extend from the rear of the cheek extending to the heel to the toe.
