Styled after the late 18th century firearms that evolved in the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania this small caliber longrifle is fitted with a Jim Chambers round faced flintlock, single trigger, and octagon-to-round barrel. The top flat of the barrel has been signed T. Duprey 97 between the breech and rear sight. The gun is stocked in a lovely piece of curly maple, which has a modest amount of incised carving around the lock panels and flared tang of the breech. The brass furniture has a lightly aged patina from use. Weighing in at 7.5 pounds this longrifle has a trigger reach of 13-1/2” making it well suited for today’s average size shooter.

Measuring 33” in overall length, the .40 caliber octagon-to-round barrel has a mirror bright bore. The barrel was turned and cut down from a longer barrel blank by the Douglas Barrel Company. When the blank was cut down the muzzle is now visibly off center due to run-out, but has been correctly oriented in the vertical plane to allow for easily adjusting the sights. The octagon-to-round profile significantly reduces the weight of the barrel at the muzzle. The barrel is finished with a silvery brown faux damascus finish that gives a wire pattern. The rear sight is dovetailed 12-3/4" ahead of the breech. A tall steel blade front sight is dovetailed just behind the muzzle.

The curly maple stock is fitted with a tall wide buttplate with a Bucks County influence. The wide flat buttplate will spread the felt recoil of this .40 caliber rifle. A silver comb extension is inlaid into the comb just ahead of the buttplate. The wrist is fitted with a polished silver grotesque mask. The flared tang of the breech is framed with a panel of incised carving. The lock panels correctly taper widest at the rear in early long gun fashion.

From below the stock has a rounded toe similar to a fowling gun. The triggerguard has a fowling gun appearance with the addition of a curled grip rail. The triggerguard bow is engraved with a snowflake and the front finial is decorated as an acorn. The 3/8” wooden ramrod is held in place by two brass ramrod pipes, one entry and one forward. The ramrod is fitted with a brass tip with 8-32 threads for loading and cleaning accessories. The ramrod is long and extends 1" past the muzzle . The forend cap is shaped from black horn with a wide flare at the muzzle that drops down the mid-point of the ramrod. When viewed from the muzzle the left hand side of the muzzle cap has a small crack forming from the barrel channel from the cap shrinking against the barrel as it has aged. The sideplate fills the side panel in Germanic fashion. The sideplate is hand engraved with an oak leaf and acorn design. No cheek piece is formed in fowling gun fashion.

The large round faced Virginia Fowler flintlock, sometimes called a "Queen Anne" lock, dates from the 1730 to 1760 period, well after Anne's reign ended. The pan has a bridle arm to support the frizzen, not always found on early English locks. These early London style locks are often found on Colonial American long rifles and fowlers. This lock was assembled and tuned by Jim Chambers, one of America's most respected lock and gun makers. The side panel where the lock mates against the flat of the barrel is fitted with a nickel silver plate to provide corrosion resistance from repeated pan flash. A stainless steel touch hole liner is installed in the barrel. The 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.

This Lehigh Valley longrifle is has well fitted pats with a large round faced lock that sparks well. The 33" octagon-to-round barrel gives the rifle a light weight without being overly muzzle heavy. The .40 caliber bore should have very modest recoil. 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.
