This small caliber percussion half stock rifle is has slender shaping and a mid-18th century appearance. Stocked in black walnut the rifle has a small amount of figure through the toe. The rifle is trimmed in iron furniture with a matte finish with a poured pewter forend cap. The J. Henry percussion lock by R.E. Davis is mated to a single lever double set trigger. The lock and barrel are finished to a dark matte brown. Trigger reach is 13-1/4" to fit a average size shooter. The rifle weighs 8 pounds. The breech is initialed M.B. for contemporary maker Mike Butcher

The .36 caliber barrel is 35-1/2" by 13/16" straight octagon. The barrel is cut rifled with eight narrow grooves and wide lands in a slow twist for a patched round ball. The bore is bright and has been well maintained. The rear sight is dovetailed 9" ahead of the breech. A tall silver blade sight, so it may be dressed down to sight the rifle in, is dovetailed 1-1/2" behind the muzzle. The barrel is served by a 5/16" diameter ramrod with a 10-32 threaded steel tip.

The rifle has a Easter halfstock appearance with a slender profile shaped with a straight comb. The stock is stained to a dark brown with a deep reddish undertone. The browned steel buttplate has a modest curve to engage the shooter's shoulder. The triggerguard has a wide bow to accept the double set triggers. The rear of the bow has a finger spur, and the grip rail has a curl typical of many percussion rifles. The barrel is fitted with a short pointed tang. The toe of the rifle is unadorned, while the buttplate extends just slightly past the stock to provide some protection to the wood on the toe. The triggerguard is correctly mounted with steel screws. A pewter forend cap is fitted to the stock and acts as the ramrod entry pipe. Two steel ramrod pipes are soldered to the under barrel rib. The side plate is fitted with a wing shaped steel sideplate with a single lock bolt in late percussion fashion. The buttstock is shaped with a square cheek piece. The slender buttplate has a pleasant curve, comfortable to aim, it engages your shoulder to minimize recoil, which should be modest in the .36 caliber.

Ignition is provided by a J. Henry percussion lock by R.E. Davis. The drum is well supported by the lock plate, critical to this style of ignition. The beefy mainspring provides lots of energy, and this lock should be sure fire. The single lever double set triggers are properly tuned to fire from the set position only. You may cock the lock or set the triggers in any order. Adjust the screw between the two triggers, inboard to reduce set trigger release pressure, our outboard to require a stronger pressure.
