Stocked in curly maple, stained to a dark brown, this iron trimmed flint longrifle is made in the Southern style. This rifle is offered as used, but has been very well maintained, with a shinny bore and only a few tiny handling marks in the stock. Trigger reach is 14", to perfectly fit a larger size shooter. Weight is 10.2 pounds.

Ready to shoot, the .54 caliber barrel is 1" across the flats and 40" long. The barrel is cut rifled with seven equal lands and grooves. The bore is bright and has been well maintained. We do note that there is a very minimal crown at the muzzle, which may make loading difficult. A buckhorn rear sight is dovetailed 7-3/4" inches forward of the breech, the rear sight is matched forward by an iron blade front sight 1-1/2" behind the muzzle.

The curly maple stock is stained to a dark brown, with a semi-gloss finish. The stock has a few small dings and scratches from normal handling and use. The barrel and all steel furniture have been browned to a dark chocolate brown finish. The barrel is retained to the stock with three small brass pins. The top view shows the browned iron buttplate, and wide comb of the maple buttstock. The tang of the barrel is retained by a single domed head tang bolt. The bottom view shows the steel triggerguard, which is retained by two small iron screws in the front and rear. A long iron toeplate protects the toe of this rifle, during loading and cleaning. One entry and two forward browned iron ramrod pipes retain the 3/8" hickory ramrod, fitted with a brass tip, threaded 10-32 to accept our cleaning jag, ball puller, and patch worm, sold separately. An iron muzzlecap has been installed on the rifle to protect the end grain of the wood. Our side view shows the simple cheek piece, and browned iron sideplate, with one browned lock bolt passing through to retain the flint lock.

Ignition is provided by a large Siler flint lock. Finished to a matte brown, to match the barrel. The brown finish shows a small amount of wear from normal use. The lock has a strong mainspring, and short hammer travel, for fast lock time. We recommend our 3/4" knapped English flints #FLINT-ENG-6.

The double lever double set trigger is properly adjusted to allow the lock to be cocked, or the trigger set, in any sequence. Correct geometry gives this rifle a very smooth trigger release. Adjust the screw between the two triggers, inboard to reduce set trigger release pressure, our outboard to require a stronger pressure. When screwed fully inboard, the adjustment screw disables the rear trigger, so the rifle must be fired from the front trigger, which requires about a four pound pull for release. It is wise to disable the rear trigger, when hunting in very cold weather. But the set trigger can provide very light release, perhaps an ounce or two, for accurate aimed shooting during pleasant weather.

Fast ignition is assured by the Ampco vent liner, positioned well above the bottom of the pan, centered on the heat of the flash. If your flint longrifle suffers from that infamous slow whoosh-bang ignition delay, study the work of today's best gun makers, and position your vent well centered on the pan, high above the bottom, to serve as a window on the center of the flash.
