This heavy barreled flintlock longrifle appears to have been designed for "over the log" or rest shooting. The fullstock rifle is fitted with a 42" straight octagon barrel. brass furniture, and a hand made lock. The rifle likely dates from the 1950 to 1960 period. A Lyman peep sight has been fitted to the tang, and glove sight fitted tot he barrel. Both the lock and barrel are marked A,M. Osterman, with a very professional looking stamp. This rifle weighs 12 pounds, and has a very long trigger reach, measuring 15".

The 1" octagon 42" long barrel has a .50 caliber cut rifled bore. Nicely finished inside with seven lands and grooves with a slow twist for a patched round ball. The bore is bright and feel smooth when a patch is run down it. It doe appear to have had some rust preventative applied before storage which is coming out the patches. The barrel is fitted with a Lyman No. 17 globe front sight (inverted), a flat top rear sight is dovetailed 10-1/2" ahead of the breech. The top flat is stamped -A.M. Osterman-. The tang is fitted with a Lyman peep sight.

The rifle is stocked bird's eye maple and the style of the buttstock appears to have been influenced by the Allentown- Bethlehem, Pennsylvania school of longrifles. The stock has "roman nose", which refers to the convex comb and the concave wrist to toe. A third arc normally extends from the bottom of the lock panel, and creates a step at the rear of the triggerguard, but the very long length of pull blends these two arcs together. The buttstock is fitted with brass patchbox with piercings on the head and side panels. The door is a cam over center design and functions correctly with a square patchbox cavity.

The toe of the rifle is protected with a brass toeplate, mounted with two steel screws. The triggerguard is mounted with steel screws. All the screw have been neatly indexed with the slots aligned. The forend has brass escutcheon plates fitted around the four barrel pins. The ramrod pipes are brass with rings on the ends. The ramrod is finished with a barber pole stripe, The brass tip has no provisions for threaded accessories. The side panel shows good architecture with the upper edge a continuation of the line of the quarter flat of the barrel. The side panel is fitted with a flush mounted brass sideplate. Lock bolts are neatly indexed with the slots aligned. The square cheek is inlaid with a brass star.

The lock appears to be hand made and is marked A.M. Osterman on the plate and has been color case hardened. The lock design has a shallow curve on the lower edge, and a Germanic influenced pan with flat panels. The color case hardening on the lock has started to mellow from age. The lock sparks well and we suggest a 3/4 by 7/8" flint for use, see our #FLINT-ENG-6. The double set triggers are a single lever design. You may cock the lock before or after setting the trigger, but the triggers must be set to fire the lock due to the design. The vent liner is concave inside to bring the main powder charge very close to the incandescent heat of the priming flash. Well positioned on the center of the pan, slightly above the pan to frizzen joint, sometimes called the "sunset" position. The vent hole is centered on the heat of the priming flash, for instant ignition, without the whoosh-bang delay, seen in many flint guns.

This longrifle is neatly fitted and finished. Assembled with a hand made lock the heavy barrel gives this rile a modest weight for shooting from a rest. The rifle is fitted with a Lyman brand peep sight and No. 17 globe sight. Order it for a ten day visual inspection. You will be delighted.
