Constructed in the manner of those longrifles originally built in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, this rifle was neatly assembled by contemporary builder George Nelson. The curly maple stock is stained and finished to best display the figure over the length of the stock. The rifle is trimmed in browned iron furniture, and the buttstock is fitted with a sliding wooden patchbox. The L&R Classic flintlock and Colerain swamped octagon barrel are both finished to a dark brown. Weighing in at 7.2 pounds, the rifle has a trigger reach of 13-3/4", well suited for today's average sized shooter.

The rifle is fitted with a 38" swamped octagon .54 caliber Colerain barrel. The swamped octagon barrel is thickest at the breech for strength, tapers to a narrow waist to reduce weight, and flares at the muzzle align the sight. The .54 caliber bore is cut rifled with six deep round bottom grooves with a 1 in 56" slow twist for a tightly patched round ball. The bore is bright in as-new condition. The top flat of the barrel is signed G.B. Nelson between the breech and rear sight. The flat top rear sight is dovetailed 8-1/2" ahead of the breech. A nickel silver blade front sight is fitted behind the muzzle.

This rifle has the angular lines common on rifles from the Lancaster County, Pennsylvania region. The stock is stained to a dark brown with golden undertone to best display the figure. The striking figure can be seen in the buttstock, and sliding wooden patchbox door. The bullet shaped patchbox is notched at the base with thumb relief, and has a raised border. To release the door compress the spring toward the lid and slide the door to the rear. Beneath the door is a deep cavity to store flints, jags, or other shooting accessories. At the point where the comb transitions into the wrist a line of raised carving can be seen. The browned steel buttplate is well fitted to the stock. The buttplate comb is shaped with three broad flats and wedding band transition. Ahead of the comb the wrist sweeps up to the flared tang of the breech. The tang and barrel are finished to a dark brown.

A short steel toeplate protects the toe of the rifle when it is in contact with the ground during loading and cleaning. The bottom flat of the stock gently narrows from the toe to the lock panels. The steel triggerguard has been neatly finished with well defined flats. The ramrod pipes are octagon with raised rings at the ends for strength. A 3/8" diameter ramrod serves the barrel, the end is fitted with a brass tip with 8-32 threads to accept loading and cleaning accessories. An Lancaster County square tail sideplate is retained by two fire blued lock bolts that pass through the plate and stock to engage the lock on the opposite side. The raised carving on the cameo wrist transitions into a square cheek with a stepped face.

Ignition for the rifle is provided by this L&R Classic flint lock. This lock has the classic Germanic styling of locks from the 1760-1800 era. The cam action angle of the tumbler engages the mainspring, to speed lock time. Turned bearing surfaces on the tumbler and sear minimize friction, essential during cold weather hunting. Improved cock geometry allows a shorter stroke, with better sparks thrown We recommend our 3/4" knapped English flints for use with this lock.

A stainless vent liner that has been installed on the rifle. This vent is perfectly positioned, well above the bottom of the pan. A vent serves as a window, allowing the heat of the flash to be instantly transmitted to the main charge. It should not be located low in the pan, serving as a drain, where it will slow ignition, causing the classic "whoosh - bang" delay often associated with flint longrifles. With this geometry, ignition appears to have no such delay.

In as-new unfired condition, this contemporary left hand longrifle will be a joy to shoot! The lucky buyer will own a treasure that will last a lifetime, and his heirs will raise toasts to his good taste, far into the future. Order it for a ten day visual inspection. You will be delighted.
