This long rifle is constructed in the utilitarian poor-boy, “Barn Rifle," or Schimmel style. Stocked in curly maple this rifle is trimmed in limited brass furniture. Only the necessities are used and all other furniture has been omitted. The rifle features an L&R flint lock and a 44" Colerain swamped barrel with a bright bore. Stocked with a trigger reach of 13-1/4" and an overall weight of just 7.1 pounds, the barn rifle is properly setup for today's average sized shooter.

The heart of the rifle is its .50 caliber swamped Colerain barrel. The bore is bright and has been well maintained. Colerain rifle barrels are drilled from solid steel, cut rifled with six “round bottom" grooves with a 1 in 56" twist for a tightly patched round ball. The “radius groove rifling", Colerain uses eliminates the sharp inside corner that accumulates fouling. 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. The barrel is finished a dark chocolate brown. The flat top rear sight is dovetailed 12-3/4" from the breech. The silver blade front sight set in a brass base is dovetailed 2" behind the muzzle. The muzzle end of the barrel is stamped 48.

The curly maple stock has fine stripes of figure from the muzzle to the butt. Stained a nice red tone, the stock has a few handling marks from use. No buttplate is fitted, in true poor-boy fashion. Instead, three small nails are installed to protect the feel of the stock. This area will age the fasted from use since it is often placed on the ground for loading and cleaning. The flared tang of the breech has a bolt that passes through the stock to engage the trigger plate below. The barrel is retained to the forearm with three pins.

A brass toeplate is installed to provide some protection to this otherwise fragile area. Subject to contact with the ground when loading and cleaning, the toe commonly collects small dents and dings from such use and a toeplate was often installed to prevent this. The long brass triggerguard is correctly mounted with pins. Well forward and out of the picture two plain brass ramrod pipes hold the wooden rod in position. The 3/8" diameter ramrod has an iron tip that is threaded to accept 10-32 cleaning and loading accessories. The ramrod extends past the muzzle 1/2" and a .50 caliber brass cleaning jag is currently installed extending further past the muzzle. No muzzlecap and no ramrod entry pipe have been fitted to this rifle, leaving the end grain of the wood exposed in each position. A simple cheek piece is carved giving a comfortable platform from which to align the sights. A plain brass sideplate has two dome head bolts that pass through to engage the lock on the opposite side.

Ignition is provided by this L&R flint lock, with a browned finish that matches the barrel. The mainspring is very strong, which accounts for the fast lock time. We recommend our 3/4" knapped English flint, #FLINT-ENG-6. The single trigger is pinned high to provide good leverage against the sear. Fast ignition is assured by the stainless vent liner, 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.

Stocked in a red stained piece of curly maple, this rifle has a striking appearance. This .50 caliber rifle has a bright well maintained bore. It will be a joy to shoot at the range or in the woods this Fall. Order it for a ten day visual inspection. You will be delighted.
