This lozenge shaped sideplate design was used by the famous Joesph Long of Snyder County, Pennsylvania. His late flint and early percussion period longrifles were generally decorated with geometric inlays, neatly set flush with the surface, as was the sideplate. Solid brass about .090" thick.

Not shown, the lock bolt hole is counterbored to accept our #BOLT-L-8-F or other 8-32 or 10-32 threaded lock bolt with 3/8" diameter head.

Joseph Long and his contemporary rifle makers are depicted in The Kentucky Rifle and Me, by Edith Cooper. Photographs in this volume show that several makers used similar single screw sideplates, on both rifles and pistols.
