This English Sporting rifle is stocked in curly maple and trimmed in polished iron furniture. The rifle is fitted with a .58 caliber octagon-to-round Colerain barrel that gives it a modest weight and allows it to point easily. The Chamber's English lock throws a shower of sparks, and the bore is bright, having been well maintained. The toe of the buttstock has a repaired chip, and two small hairline cracks can bee seen extending from the buttplate screw on both sides of the buttstock. Trigger reach is 13-1/2" to fit today's average size shooter. Weight is 8.1 pounds.

The .58 caliber octagon breech transitions to sixteen flats with two wedding bands to round. The 32" length gives this rifle a modest weight. 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. Colerain rifle barrels are drilled from solid steel, cut rifled with six "round bottom" grooves. Called "radius groove rifling", Colerain eliminates the sharp inside corner that accumulates fouling. Radius groove rifling cutters are a bit more expensive to make, but Colerain's customers agree that the accuracy, easy loading, and easy cleaning are worth the cost. The bore is bright, clean, and ready to shoot. A tall iron blade front sight is dovetailed 3/4" behind the muzzle. A semi-buckhorn rear sight that has been turned into a peep sight is dovetailed 7" ahead of the breech. A thin piece of sheet steel has been soldered to the back of the sight and a hole drilled through the top to act as a peep sight. The barrel is finished to a smooth chocolate brown. We note there are small amounts of solder visible along the rib joint.

The curly maple stock is stained to a whiskey brown with golden undertones. The buttstock is fitted with an English style buttplate with short pointed comb. The tall, nearly flat buttplate will spread the felt recoil from the .58 caliber bore over a large area. We note two 1" hairline cracks can bee seen extending from the buttplate screw on both sides of the buttstock. The top view shows the short tang of the hooked breech. A single key passes through iron escutcheons to retain the barrel to the forearm. The hooked breech allows for instant take down. Withdraw the ramrod, close the frizzen, remove the wedge key, and the barrel lifts out of the stock for easy cleaning.

The bottom view shows the rounded toe of the buttstock. The tip of the toe has a repaired chip. The chip happened during the build process, and it was repaired and finished to match perfectly with the rest of the stock. The triggerguard is shaped with a wide open bow and scroll at the end of the grip rail. The guard is correctly attached to the trigger plate, which ends in a pineapple finial. The forend is fitted with a polished iron cap to protect the end grain of the stock. The ramrod is mounted through two forward pipes soldered to the barrel's rib, and one entry pipe with short pointed skirt. The ramrod is fitted with a brass tip threaded to accept 10-32 cleaning and loading accessories. The single lock bolt passes through a simple washer style sideplate. The buttstock is shaped with a large beaver tail cheekpiece.

The large round faced English fowling gun lock, sometimes called a "Queen Anne" lock, dates from the 1730 to 1760 period, well after Anne's reign ended. Sometimes called a “James Barbar" lock, after that famous early London maker who signed his work. 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. This fowler lock is shaped with a decorative molding and has a raised water proof pan, a fine feature on an early lock. The lock is polished bright to match the barrel. The single trigger is pinned high, for best leverage, giving this lock a smooth easy trigger release. Fast ignition is assured by the stainless steel vent liner, positioned well above the bottom of the pan, centered on the heat of the flash.
