This Pennsylvania longrifle is stocked in a highly figured piece of curly maple. The stock has been stained to best reveal the contrasting stripes of figure, but does have a slight greenish cast when viewed under artificial light. Trimmed in brass furniture which has started to develop a mellow patina. The brown finish at the breech end of the barrel and around the vent hole of the lock displays typical wear from firing and cleaning. The rifle is unsigned as to a maker. With a 13-1/4” trigger reach and an overall weight of 7.6 pounds, this flint longrifle is setup for today’s average sized shooter

The rifle is assembled around a .32 caliber by 44" swamped octagon barrel. The swamped barrel is thickest at the breech for strength, tapers to a narrow waist to reduce weight, and flares at the muzzle to align the sights. The bore is cut rifled with seven deep grooves in a slow twist for patched round ball. The exterior of the swamped barrel is finished to a matte dark brown. The flat-top rear sight is mounted 10" ahead of the breech. A thick steel blade front sight is mounted 1-1/2" behind the muzzle.

The maple stock is highly figured with narrow bands of figure from the butt to the muzzle. The stock has a few small scattered handling marks as well as some small open areas across the midpoint of the stock that are original to the construction of the rifle. The buttplate is wide, tall, and will help to spread the modest recoil from the .32 caliber bore over a large area. The rifle is not highly decorated, but does have very good metal to wood fit and slender shaping.

The brass triggerguard is properly pinned into position, as is traditional. No toeplate has been installed on the rifle, leaving that delicate area of the stock unprotected during the loading and cleaning phases. The toe of the rifle does have some scattered handling marks. Forward on the gun the 9/32” ramrod is retained by two forward pipes, no entry pipe is fitted in schimmel or barn rifle style. The ramrod is fitted with a brass tip with 8-32 threads for loading and cleaning accessories. We would recommend using a dedicated 5/16" diameter cleaning and loading rod for this rifle and using this well fitted ramrod only when necessary. In shimmel or barn rifle style no muzzle cap or sideplate is fitted to this rifle. The buttstock is shaped with a square cheek for a right hand shooter to comfortably align the sights.

A small Siler flint lock provides the ignition for the rifle. This is an older example of the small Siler lock with the shorter tumbler geometry found on current production locks. The cock on this example has a small amount of for and aft play on the tumbler shank. This Germanic influenced lock is finished to a dark brown with a light aged patina typical of firing and cleaning. We recommend our 5/8" square knapped English flints for best performance in this lock. The Walter Cain single set trigger with decorative scroll back requires firm pressure to set, but once set it requires only a small amount of pressure to fire the lock. This single set trigger will only operate from the set position. The trigger must be set before the lock can be cocked to either the half cock, or full cock position.

Fast ignition is assured by the stainless 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.

In very good overall condition this .32 caliber rifle has a bright bore and well fitted furniture. It is used with typical wear around the vent hole firing and cleaning and scattered handling marks. Order it for a ten day visual inspection. You will be delighted. Else if it does not fit you, return it in unfired condition for same-day refund.
