Created by Minnesota gun maker Thom Frazier, this rifle is signed on the top flat of the barrel, and is a nice example of this popular gun maker's work. This rifle is as-new, unfired. Regular use will give the bright finish on the lock, barrel, and brass furniture a mellow patina. This Virginia style rifle is stocked in maple and trimmed in brass furniture. Ignition is provided by a Chambers Deluxe Siler flint lock mated to double lever double set trigger. The .54 caliber 42" swamped octagon Colerain barrel gives the rifle excellent balance without being overly muzzle heavy. Trigger reach is 14" to fit today's average size shooter, and the rifle's weight is 8.5 pounds.

This longrifle is fitted with a 42" Colerain swamped octagon barrel that is polished bright. The swamped octagon 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 .54 caliber bore is cut rifled with six lands and radius grooves with a 1 in 56" twist for a tightly patched round ball. The bore is bright and clean, in as-new condition. The top flat of the barrel is signed T*Frazier and the left oblique flat is engraved No. 183 near the breech. A silver blade front sight set in a brass base is dovetailed 2-1/2" behind the muzzle. A flat top rear sight is dovetailed 12" ahead of the breech.

The maple stock is stained to a light brown with golden highlights to display the figure. The stock is accented with a small amount of incised carving around the cheekpiece, throughout the forearm, and an incised molding along the toe. Earlier rifles are generally not as highly decorated as later "golden age" longrifles. The buttstock is fitted with a wide flat buttplate to spread the felt recoil from the .54 caliber bore over a large area. The triggerguard has a wide open bow to accept the double lever double set trigger. The stock has a slender profile with the forearm and forend following the taper and flare of the swamped octagon barrel.

The sliding wood patchbox has a bullet shaped nose, and the base is cut with thumb relief. Compress the spring toward the lid and slide it to the rear to reveal a deep cut cavity for flints, patches, or other shooting accessories.

The buttplate is finished with three octagon flats and a wedding band. The brass furniture is polished bright, and with regular use and handling will acquire a mellow aged patina. The flared tang of the barrel is retained by a single tang bolt, the slot is neatly aligned with the barrel. The raised carving from the lock panels flows into a large beaver tail around the flared tang of the breech plug.

The toe of the stock is not fitted with a toeplate, however the buttplate does extend past the toe to help protect this area when loading. The triggerguard is shaped with a wide open bow, and long grip rail with a flared spoon at the end. The trigger is retained with a steel screw in the rear and a pin in front. We note there is a gap between the front of the guard and the stock. An entry pipe with long skirt, and two forward pipes mount the 3/8" ramrod. The tapered ramrod is fitted with a iron tip with 8-32 threads to accept loading and shooting accessories. The muzzle end is fitted with a brass loading tip. A brass muzzle cap protects the end grain of the forearm.

Ignition for the rifle is provided by this Jim Chamber's Deluxe Siler flint lock. Notice the tall cock, top jaw and jaw screw, which sweep the frizzen from a higher point with more velocity, for better sparking. This lock has a good strong mainspring and should send a shower of sparks flying when the flint and frizzen connect. We recommend our 3/4" knapped English flints for best performance in this rifle. The lock is polished bright. to match the barrel.

The stainless steel vent liner blends into the bright finish on the barrel. The vent liner is positioned well above the bottom of the pan, centered on the heat of the flash. The size and position of this liner cause it to overlap the quarter flat. The liner has been dressed to match the flat. 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.

Below the lock a set of double lever, double set triggers has been installed on the rifle. Properly tuned and adjusted the triggers can be set and fired in any sequence. Set the rear trigger to lighten the trigger pull when at the range or leave the triggers unset for use in cold weather hunting situations.

The large brass sideplate has sweeping curves and squared tail. The raised carved lock panel terminates in a beaver tail at the mid point of the wrist. The square cheek is shaped with a molded edge. Simple incised carving decorates the stock around the cheek. Incised molding extends from the toe to the triggerguard, creating a slimming effect.

We recommend this simple and attractive Virginia rifle for the French & Indian War era reenactor or the Revolutionary War volunteer, seeking a suitable gun for militia duty.
