This classic golden age era fullstock flint longrifle is used with a natural aged patina. Modeled after the work of Isaac Haines. The work of Isaac Haines was little known until John Bivins and his associates began emulating his work. Apparently Joe Kindig, Jr. did not have an Isaac Haines longrifle in his vast collection, so Haines was not listed in Thoughts on the Kentucky Rifle in its Golden Age. Dr. George Shumway suggests that the original gunmaker, Isaac Haines, may have been Lancaster County's most influential gunmaker, bringing his knowledge of sophisticated Philadelphia carving styles to his region, during the 1770's.

Made in the popular Lancaster County, Pennsylvania style, stocked in curly maple, the figure has attractive stripes and modest swirls, from muzzle to butt. Stained to a attractive amber brown, with gold undertones common to rifles from the Lancaster region. The stock is expertly raised carved with smooth clean backgrounds. The brass furniture has aged to a natural mellow patina from handling, firing, and cleaning. The barrel and large Siler flintlock are finished to a dark brown. . The rifle has a 13-1/2" trigger reach for todays average size shooter. The rifle weights 9.2 pounds, and holds quite steady if you can manage the weight.

The 42" length .54 caliber cut rifled barrel is light weight at the muzzle end, due to the taper and flare of the swamped octagon barrel. The thick breech makes the barrel very strong. The thin waist saves weight, and the muzzle flares to bring the front sight to the same sighting plane as the rear sight. The bore is bright and has been well maintained. The bore is rifled with seven lands and square grooves with a slow twist for a tightly patched round ball. Based on the style of the seven square groove rifling and age of the rifle we believe this is a Getz barrel. The front sight is a nickel silver blade with a brass base. The flat top rear sight is dovetailed 11" ahead of the breech. This extra distance from the breech will be easier to use for shooters with " older" eyes or corrective lenses.

The stock is a lovely piece of maple, hard and dense with narrow stripes of figure best viewed in bright daylight. The buttstock has the classic angular lines of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. The stock has a few small handling marks, which appear appropriate with the patina on the brass. Over time the wood has shrunk slightly with the buttplate just standing proud of the wood now. The buttplate comb is finished with broad flats and a wedding band transition. The buttplate comb has some streaks from water with black powder residue wetting it during cleaning. The finish on the stock has a few dull streaks from the same reason, but they are much less noticeable. The cheek is offset to the rear to recoil away from the shooter's face. The lock panels gently taper widest at the rear, a architectural detail found on early flint longrifles. The raised carving around the tang is very well executed with smooth lines and well cleaned background.

The brass patchbox is shaped and engraved in the style of Isaac Haines, with a simple floral motif on the lid, and floral borders along all edges. Correct steel screws are used to mount the brass patchbox and hardware. A button release in the heel of the buttplate allows the open the door to reveal a deep cut cavity for storing flints, jags, or other shooting accessories.

A short brass toeplate is fitted to the stock to protect this fragile area that commonly acquires marks during use, while loading and cleaning. The triggerguard is hand filed with crisp flats and has a nice mellow aged patina. A panel of raised carving surrounds the tail of the ramrod entry pipe and transitions into a raised molding along the edge of the barrel channel. The ramrod pipes are brass with raised rings on the ends and paneled bodies. The ramrod is fitted with a brass tip with 8-32 threads for loading and cleaning accessories. A brass muzzle cap protects the end grain of the stock. The side panel is neatly shaped and fitted with a classic square tail Lancaster County sideplate. The cheek piece is expertly hand carved with decorative scrolls in the style of Isaac Haines. The carving is well done with smooth clean backgrounds.

Sure-fire ignition is provided by a large Siler flintlock The lock plate has a hand forged appearance, and has been finished to a dark brown to match the barrel. We recommend our 3/4" knapped English flints for best performance in this lock. The single trigger is properly pinned to give good leverage against the sear resulting in a crisp, clean pull. A direct drilled 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.

Very neatly assembled with fine raised carving. This rifle has a well used appearance with a few handling marks on the stock, a mellow patina on the brass furniture, and a light aged patina on the barrel around the vent hole. 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.
