Stocked in modestly figured maple this Christian's Spring, Pennsylvania Longrifle reflects the Germanic heritage of those early Colonial settlers. The rifle is trimmed in brass furniture and stocked in maple. In new condition with a patina finish on the iron furniture, the maple stock has no dents, dings, or handling marks. Regular use and handling will give this rifle the appearance of a well maintained antique. Hand shaped from a blank by Steve Losey. Trigger reach is 13-/12" to fit todays average size shooter. Weight is 8 pounds.

The Colerain 38" swamped octagon .54 caliber cut rifled barrel is finished with a smooth patina finish. The large caliber and swamped profile make this rifle point easily, without being overly heavy. Cut rifled, the bore has six lands and grooves. Grooves are round bottom with a 1 turn in 56 inches for a tightly patched round ball. The front sight is a nickel silver b lade, mounted 2-1/2" behind the muzzle. The flat top rear sight is dovetailed 11-1/2" from the breech. "Older" eyes often find this extra distance from the breech very desirable, as it brings the sights into focus more easily.

The maple stock is hard and dense, with a modest amount of random stripes of figure visible across the buttstock. Lock panels are shaped with a long beaver tail. The stock is finished smooth, regular use will add some handling marks which would give this rifle a well aged appearance on both the metal and wood. The wide flat brass buttplate will spread the recoil from the .54 caliber bore. The buttstock is fitted with a sliding wood patchbox in Germanic fashion. Beneath the door is a cut cavity for storing flints, jags, or other shooting accessories. The tang of the breech is surrounded by a raised and incised carved Fluer de Lys. The barrel was filed smooth and finished with a light gray brown patina. The breech end of the barrel is signed S. Losey #90.

No toeplate is fitted to this nice rifle. Instead the buttplate extends past the wood to provide some protection to the wood along the toe. The Germanic style triggerguard is fitted with traditional pins. Ramrod pipes are round with raised rings at each end. The ramrod does not have any tips for threaded accessories. The early buttplate has a pleasant curve, comfortable to aim, it engages your shoulder to minimize recoil. This side view shows the large brass sideplate, which fills the side panel in Germanic fashion. The lock is retained by two domed lock bolts. The stock is shaped with a square cheek piece.

This rifle is fitted with a large flat faced flintlock in 1750-1770 era style. This lock is designed without a pan bridle to support the frizzen common to early lock designs. The frizzen is filed to a fancy shape, and the frizzen spring is retained by a blind screw. The frizzen is tightly fitted to the pan to keep your priming powder dry. A stainless steel vent liner is centered on the pan, correctly located in the sunset position, at the pan and frizzen joint. Your priming flash will be centered on this window to the main charge.
