This left Southern Mountain percussion longrifle is stocked in curly maple and trimmed in a mixture of hand forged iron and brass furniture. Many period rifles from the Appalachians were assembled with maple or walnut stocks, hand forged iron furniture, set triggers and imported English locks. This rifle is assembled with Siler Mountain percussion lock and single lever double set trigger. Long barreled rifles of this design are often called a "over the log" gun, or chunk gun. With an overall weight of 9.9 pounds and a trigger reach of 13-1/4" this longrifle was built for today's average size shooter.

The .47 caliber Ed Rayl custom made swamped octagon barrel is 47-1/2" length. The .47 caliber bore is rifled with seven lands and grooves with a slow twist for a tightly patched round ball. The bore is bright and has been well maintained. The barrel is finished to a gray brown patina. The rear sight is dovetailed 11" from the breech. The low silver blade front sight is dovetailed behind the muzzle.

The hand forged iron buttplate and decorative iron triggerguard are classic designs found on longrifles from the Carolinas to Tennessee. This sturdy buttplate is well inlet, and it will protect the end grain of the buttstock during use. The buttplate comb is secure with two screws, as found on some antique Appalachian rifles. The gentle curve of the buttplate engages the shooter's shoulder comfortably. The buttstock is fitted with a "banana" style patchbox, a typical feature found on antique rifles by Bean of Tennessee. The patchbox has a strong spring catch at the rear to secure the door closed. We did not open the patchbox.

The bottom view reveals the long brass toeplate fitted to the rifle. The iron triggerguard is retained with screws both front and rear in traditional fashion. The forearm has the classic square shoulder at the ramrod entry into the forearm. A brass ramrod pipe with no skirt is fitted as a entry pipe, with two matching forward pipes on the forearm. The 5/16" diameter ramrod does not have any provisions for thread accessories. The stock is shaped with a slightly recessed muzzle end, to allow an easy grip of the ramrod. A poured pewter muzzle cap is fitted to protect the end grain of the stock. The side panel has a brass oval lozenge sideplate inlet flush with the side panel. The square cheek is shaped with a molded edge, and fitted with oval cheek piece. The angular stock architecture and molded panels of the cheek piece are classic features of percussion Tennessee rifles.

The 1830 to 1850 era Siler Mountain caplock is modeled after popular hardware store locks from the period. We have examined many antique rifles with similar shaped locks. This attractive medium size rifle lock is based on left hand Siler internal lock parts, should parts ever be required. The percussion drum is well supported and fitted with a steel 1/4-28 threaded nipple.

This rifle is fitted with a single lever double set trigger. Due to the single lever design it will only fire from the set position. The rear trigger backlash has not been adjusted, so it will hold the sear out of the notches on the tumbler, unless the rear trigger is set before the lock is cocked. Once set the lock will engage the half cock and full cock positions.

This is a correct and attractive example of a primitive Southern Mountain rifle with hand buttplate and triggerguard. The long barrel makes it ideal for "over the log" shooting.
