This slim fullstock has the styling of Snyder County, Pennsylvania. One of the most prolific makers from this area was Joseph Long. Born in 1799, he was a prolific maker from 1832 until his death in 1872. You can find rifles by Joseph Long pictured in The Kentucky Rifle and Me and The Kentucky Rifle, A True American Heritage in Pictures.. This longrifle has a few marks on the frizzen face, but it otherwise as new. The rifle was assembled by contemporary maker B. Thomas. Trigger reach is 13-1/4" to fit today's average size shooter. Weight is a modest 6.4 pounds.

The .45 caliber 13/16" straight 36" long Colerain barrel is cut rifled with six lands and radius groves with a slow twist for a tightly patched round ball. The bore is bright and ready to shoot. We recommend our .440" diameter pure lead round ball, patched with .018" Ox-Yoke patching, lubricated with our Mink Oil tallow patch grease, if you require best accuracy. The barrel has been draw filed smooth and finished to a even brown. A tall flat top rear sight is dovetailed 8-1/4" ahead of the breech. A nickel silver blade front sight set in a brass base is dovetailed behind the muzzle.

The slender buttstock has a Roman nose shape with gently curved comb. The maple stock has random stripes of figure over the length of the stock and is stained to a warm brown with dark stripes of figure and finished to a satin sheen. The maple stock is fitted with a slender gently curved brass buttplate. Not highly decorated with carving or inlays this utilitarian longrifle is neatly fitted and has slender shaping. The comb of the buttplate is shaped with three broad flats. The Roman nose comb tapers toward the slender wrist. The straight tang breech plug is shaped with a pointed nose. The builder noted that the lock bolt, tang bolt, and buttplate screw heads have been case hardened to resist wear on the slots.

The browned steel toeplate protects the toe from damage when in contact with the ground during loading and cleaning. This toeplate is well inlet, correctly retained by two steel screws with the slots aligned with the barrel. The brown finish on the toeplate has some areas with a light texture. The brass triggerguard is mounted with pins. The 3/8 diameter ramrod is mounted through brass sheet metal ramrod pipes. The ramrod has a 8-32 threaded tip for ramrod accessories. A single lock bolt retains the lock in late flintlock fashion and the side panel is fitted with a tear drop sideplate with the tail tipped to the rear. Lock panels are very trim and give this longrifle a slender graceful appearance.

This rifle is fitted with a small Siler flint lock. You can be assured of long life, and easy service, if ever needed. This small lock looks correct on this slender rifle. We recommend our 5/8" knapped English flint for best performance in this lock. The lock plate is finished to a pewter gray that nicely contrasts the brown finish on the barrel and the warm brown tone on the stock. The single trigger is pinned high to provide good leverage against the sear. 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.

This longrifle is new, unfired. It is neatly inlet and has slender attractive shaping. The lightweight barrel and slender shaping combine to make a very handy flintlock longrifle. 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. Postage is your only risk, when you order any one-of-a-kind gun from Track, whether new, used, or antique.
