This Virginia longrifle is stocked in curly maple and trimmed in brass furniture. The rifle blends a mixture of English and Germanic features. The brass buttplate is wide and flat to best spread the recoil over a large area. The .50 caliber by 46" octagon-to-round barrel gives the rifle excellent balance without being overly muzzle heavy. This rifle is used with some small handling marks on the stock. Trigger reach is 12-1/2" to fit today's shorter to average man size shooter, and the rifle's weight is 8.6 pounds.

This .50 caliber rifle is fitted with a 46" octagon-to-round barrel by Charles Burton. The tapered octagon breech is 13-3/4" with a single wedding band to round. The .50 caliber bore is rifled with seven lands and grooves with a slow twist for a tightly patched round ball. The muzzle has been coned to ease loading without the use of a short starter. The bore is bright and has been well maintained. A flat top rear sight is dovetailed 11-1/2" ahead of the breech. A tall brass blade front sight is soldered behind the muzzle. The barrel has a textured dark brown finish.

The maple stock is stained to a warm brown with golden undertones to best display the figure. The buttstock has a Germanic appearance with a very slight step at the wrist. The fowler style buttplate has a long stepped comb with a squared end. You may notice that the buttplate is not perfectly centered behind the tang. Rather, it is offset from the right hand shooter's cheek. This feature is called cast-off, and it places the right hand shooter's eye directly behind the line of sight, making this gun instinctive to point and shoot. The cheek is angled to the rear, to recoil away from your face, an ingenious feature found on better rifles. The lock panels taper widest to the rear in early long gun fashion.

The brass triggerguard has a Germanic influence with a large open bow and offset grip rail. The triggerguard is mounted with a combination of pin and screw in early fashion. An entry pipe with long skirt, and two forward pipes mount the 7/16" tapered ramrod. The ramrod has no tips and no provisions for threaded accessories. The forend gracefully follows the taper of the octagon-to-round barrel. The large brass sideplate fills the side panel in Germanic fashion.

This flat faced English flint lock is made in the style of the early work of Thomas Ketland, commonly used on traditional American longrifles and English fowling guns of the 1750-1780 era. Cock this lock, and notice the pre-loaded heavy mainspring rides on a cam-action tumbler ramp. This gives the lock a light release, increasing in speed through the stroke, due to increasing leverage. We recommend our 7/8" knapped English flints for best performance in this lock.

A direct drilled vent hole is positioned 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.

We recommend simple and attractive Virginia rifle for the French & Indian War era reenactor or the Revolutionary War volunteer, seeking a suitable gun for militia duty. The bore is bright and has been well maintained. Order it for a ten day visual inspection. You will be delighted. Else if it does not fit you, return it in unfired condition for same-day refund. Postage is your only risk, when you order any one-of-a-kind gun from Track, whether new, used, or antique.
