This Spanish Catalan style rifle is stock and maple and trimmed in brass furniture. The rifle is assembled around a late 19th century Liege, Belgium trade lock styled after a Spanish Miquelet. Neatly hand made by contemporary builder S. Krolick, this rifle is attractively shaped, fitted, and finished and would make an excellent rifle for a Spanish Colonial impression in the now Southern U.S. Spanish weaponry was present in North America throughout the era of Spanish colonization and up to the early 1800’s. Spanish guns were found in the form of Miquelet parts in Iroquois villages from 1687 to the hundreds of “rusty escopetas” employed by Andrew Jackson for the defense of New Orleans during the War of 1812. Weight of the rifle is only 6.8 pounds and it has a trigger reach of 12-3/8” which is typical of the antique Spanish guns designed for use with heavy clothing or light Spanish armor.

The 33" straight octagon barrel is finished to a dark brown with a light patina . The .45 caliber bore is rifled with a slow twist for a patched round ball. The bore is bright and appears to be as-new. We recommend a .440" diameter ball with a 0.010" thick shooting patch. The barrel is fitted with a small brass blade front sight and a flat top rear sight dovetailed 7" ahead of the breech.

The unusual stock shape is typical of Catalan style muskets. The buttend is flat to engage the shoulder, and the toe of the stock has a step into the lower line of the wrist. The maple stock is stained to a dark walnut tone and finished to a satin sheen. The tang of the breech is accented with a few scrolls of engraving and the top flat of the barrel has some molds filed ahead of the rear sight. The rifle uses only limited brass furniture with a triggerguard formed from brass sheet stock as well as a single band to act as a ramrod pipe. The ramrod has no provisions for threaded accessories. The side panel is neatly shaped with the upper edge of the panel continuing the line of the side and quarter flat of the barrel. The two lock bolts are surface mounted with no sideplate present.

The antique trade lock was made in Liege, Belgium circa 1880 to 1910. Styled to appear as a Spanish miquelet lock this flintlock has the more typical French style internal springs vs. the external springs found on Spanish locks. This lock is not highly finished with some file marks visible, but does spark very well with a 3/4" square English gun flint. An internally coned vent is perfectly positioned, well above the bottom of the pan.
