This York County longrifle is stocked in maple and trimmed in brass furniture with bone accents. The rifle is assembled around a 39" swamped octagon barrel fitted to a Jim Chambers Golden Age flintlock and double lever double set triggers. The over all fit and finish on this rifle is only fair with some inletting gaps, and tool marks visible. It does mechanically function with the triggers tuned to fire set or unset. Weighing in at 7.2 pounds the rifle has a trigger reach of 13-3/4", well suited for today's average sized shooter.

A .50 caliber smoothbore 39" swamped barrel is the heart of the rifle. The swamped barrel is thickest at the breech, tapers to a narrow waist, and flares at the muzzle. The .50 caliber bore is bright and has been well maintained. The exterior of the barrel is finished bright and has a few small speckles from handling and use. A brass turtle front sight is dovetailed behind the muzzle. A flat top rear sight is dovetailed 11-1/4" ahead of the breech.

This rifle shows the English influence common on rifles from the York County region. The stock has been stained to reddish brown to display the modest figure over the length of the stock. The buttstock is fitted with a tall, nearly flat buttplate to spread the felt recoil over a large area. Metal to wood fit is fair with some gaps. The buttstock is decorated with double line incised moldings. It is very difficult to cut long thin lines and these do have some line width variation and small chips. The buttstock is fitted with a sliding wood patchbox decorated with incised moldings on the door and a spade head bone inlay at the front of the mortise. Patchbox fit is only fair with some fore and aft movement even when secured shut.

The lock panels are framed with incised moldings with beaver tail finials that transitions into a raised molding around the flared tang. The wrist is fitted with a bone thumbpiece finished flush. A bone inlay is fitted to the toe. The brass triggerguard is mounted with a combination of pin and screw. The forearm has a slight swell at the ramrod entry pipe and an incised molding extends the length of the ramrod channel, terminating just behind the muzzle. A 3/8" diameter ramrod is fitted through three formed sheet brass ramrod pipes. Our back view of the rifle reveals the English influenced sideplate that has been positioned on the rifle. The large brass sideplate is retained by two dome headed lock bolts that pass through the plate and stock to engage the lock on the opposite side. Further back on the rifle the cheek can be seen, flanked by rococo style carving on either side. The carving does have some visible tool marks.

Ignition is provided by this Jim Chambers' Golden Age flint lock. Finished to a matte gray. Fitted with a heavy mainspring, the lock should spark very well when combined with our #Flint-Eng-6 hand knapped 3/4" English flints. The lock shows only a few marks from spark testing and shooting. A stainless steel vent is perfectly positioned, well above the bottom of the pan. A vent serves as a window, allowing the heat of the flash to be instantly transmitted to the main charge. It should not be located low in the pan, serving as a drain, where it will slow ignition, causing the classic "whoosh - bang" delay often associated with flint longrifles. With this geometry, ignition appears to have no such delay.

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.

This used smoothrifle has fair fit and finish with visible gaps and tool marks. It does mechanically function well with a quality lock, trigger, and a bright clean bore.
