This Kentucky pistol is stocked in curly maple, stained to a amber brown with golden undertones. The brass furniture has a hand burnished appearance and nicely compliments the tone of the stock. The straight octagon barrel and the L&R John Bailes lock are both finished to a dark blue. Assembled by contemporary builder Kenneth Lincavage.

The 8-1/2" straight octagon Green Mountain barrel has been draw filed smooth and finished to a dark blue gray. The .45 caliber bore is mirror bright, cut rifled with a fast twist ideal for a patched round ball. Green Mountain Muzzle Loading Barrels are machined from high quality American made bar stock, A.I.S.I. 1137 modified, stress relieved, annealed, certified rifle barrel quality steel. All barrels are drilled from solid stock, reamed to a high degree of smoothness, then optically checked for straightness. Very close tolerances are maintained. The barrel is fitted with a flat top rear sight with a square notch and a nickel silver blade front sight.

Finished to a dark blue bright to contrast the barrel, the L&R John Bailes flintlock has a crisp action and a well hardened frizzen. When using our best 5/8" knapped English gun flints, the lock will throw a shower of sparks into the pan. A steel vent liner is well centered, positioned at the mid point between the bottom and top edge of the pan.

The stock is shaped with a bird's head grip for a man sized hand. The barrel is breeched with a flared thumbnail tang. A single tang bolt extends down into the triggerplate below. The acorn finial triggerguard is correctly mounted by one steel screw and one dowel pin. The rear extension has been neatly inlet into the pistol grip. The ramrod is fitted with a flared brass tip, but has no provisions for threaded accessories. Two domed head lock bolts secure the L&R John Bailes flintlock. The burnished brass sideplate is shaped with sweeping curves and a square tail.

Neatly fitted and finished this light weight Kentucky pistol with its' 18th century styling, will be a delight to carry at the rendezvous, an historical event, or as a trusted companion when trekking through the woods.
