This classic fullstock flint longrifle is stocked in curly maple, stained to a warm brown with golden undertones and finished with a high gloss. The furniture has been finished to a high polish and the engraving has been neatly shaded for contrast. The large Siler flintlock and Rice Barrel Company swamped barrel are both finished to a light brown. This rifle is as-new, unfired and signed by contemporary gunmaker Ted W. Cooke. Trigger reach is 13-3/8" to fit todays average size shooter. This rifle weighs 8.1 pounds. The swamped barrel gives this rifle excellent balance without being overly muzzle heavy.

The Rice 42" swamped octagon makes this longrifle point easily, without being overly heavy. The swamped barrel is thickest at the breech, tapers to a narrow waist, and flares at the muzzle. The .50 caliber bore is cut rifled with seven lands and grooves. Grooves are cut .016" deep, with round bottom rifling, twist is 1 turn in 66 inches. The bore is bright and ready to shoot. The barrel is finished a light brown and is signed Ted W. Cooke on the top flat just ahead of the rear sight. Rice Muzzle Loading Rifle Barrels are set between centers and milled octagonal, insuring a centered bore, concentric with the exterior, with no "run-out". Each barrel is stress relieved in an atmosphere controlled electric furnace, to eliminate work hardening or barrel warp, and to dampen harmonic vibrations or barrel whip.

After the rifling has been cut, each bore is "ball burnished". A carbide bore-sizing die is pulled through the barrel, to insure bore dimension uniformity, eliminating any tight or loose spots inside the barrel. This critical procedure leaves the top of the lands smooth and polished, equaling the traditional lead lapping procedure. Rice barrels are Match grade quality, with bench rest capability. Rice barrels do not require lapping or extensive shooting to break-in. A flat top rear sight is dovetailed to the barrel 12" ahead of the breech. This extra distance from the breech will be easier to use for shooters with "older" eyes or corrective lenses. A nickel silver blade front sight with brass base is dovetailed 1-1/4" behind the muzzle.

The early wide buttplate has a pleasant curve, comfortable to aim, it engages your shoulder to minimize the felt recoil from the .50 caliber bore. The buttplate comb is shaped with flats and a wedding band transition. The cheek is angled to the rear, to recoil away from your face, an ingenious feature found on better rifles. The stock has a high gloss finish to match the bright polish of the brass. The wrist is defined by a line of raised carving along the front edge of the comb and accented with bold raised carving. A raised carved triangle scroll design surrounds the flared tang of the breech plug. The four piece patchbox is finished bright and hand engraved. All of the engraving is shaded for contrast. The head and side panels are fitted with blued steel screws. The door has a button release located just ahead of the heel of the buttplate. The release works correctly to open the patchbox and the sock has a deep cut cavity for storing flints, patches, or other shooting accessories..

The square toe fades into the bottom of the lock panels. The toe is fitted with a long toeplate that is neatly fitted with blued steel screws and hand engraved. The engraved triggerguard is correctly mounted with two pins, no screws. The two lines across the front of the triggerguard are features found on longrifles produced in the Lebanon Township of Lancaster County. The lock panels are shaped with a raised molding.along the lower edge. Raised carving extends from the skirt of the ramrod entry pipe and accents the forend along the ramrod channel. The muzzle end of the stock is protected with a brass muzzle cap. Engraved nickel silver inlays surround the four barrel pins that retain the barrel to the stock. The 3/8" diameter ramrod is fitted with a brass tip with 10-32 threads for loading and cleaning accessories. The side panel is fitted with a brass sideplate hand engraved in a folk art style. The square cheek is accented with bold raised carved designs on both sides. Silver wire inlay decorates the underside of the cheek and highlights the raised carving. The cheek is inlaid with a nickel silver moon and four stars.

Ignition is provided by a large Siler flintlock. This Germanic influenced lock is tuned for best performance. The beefy mainspring provides lots of energy to assure ignition. We recommend our 3/4" knapped English flints for sure fire ignition in this lock. The lock is hand engraved with folk art designs and finished to a light brown. Fast ignition is assured by the 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.

The double lever double set triggers will fire from a set or unset position, and can be adjusted for trigger pull in the set position. Adjust the screw between the two triggers, inboard to reduce set trigger release pressure, or outboard to require a stronger pressure. The set trigger can provide very light release, perhaps an ounce or two, for accurate aimed shooting during pleasant weather.
