This 20 gauge smoothbore is fitted with sights and shaped as longrifle with a cheekpiece for a right hand shooter. Used it has some speckles of patina on the bright finished barrel and large Siler flintlock. The curly maple stock is stained to a warm brown with a golden undertone to best display the figure over the length of the stock. The brass furniture and large Siler flintlock are hand engraved with a folk art style. Sling swivels are fitted to the triggerguard and forearm. The rifle is signed by contemporary builder G.L. Jones on the top flat at the breech end of the barrel. Trigger reach is 13-1/2" to fit today's average size shooter. Weight is 7.3 pounds.

The 20 gauge barrel is 42" long with a 14" octagon breech with a single wedding band to round. The .615" bore is bright and clean, well maintained. The bright finish on the barrel has a light gray brown aged patina from handling. A brass blade front sight is soldered behind the muzzle. A semi-buckhorn rear sight is dovetailed 10-1/2" ahead of the breech. The rear sight is blued for contrast.

The brass buttplate is a fowler style, tall, nearly flat to help spread the felt recoil over a large area. The brass furniture has a hand burnished appearance. The comb of the buttplate is hand engraved with a decorative border and a bow and sheaf of arrows. The buttstock is fitted with a sliding wood patchbox shaped with a decorative molding and framed with an incised border. The patchbox and border are shaped in the style of an antique Reading, Pennsylvania rifle marked John Schreit 1762. The stock is shaped with incised moldings from the toe to the rear of the triggerguard. Large beaver tails extend from the lock panels on the wrist. The flared tang of the breech plug is surrounded by a large raised and incised carved beaver tail panel. Some filler is visible at the breech between the wood and breech end of the barrel. An incised molding runs from the muzzle cap to the ramrod entry pipe. The rear swivel is mounted through the front lug of the triggerguard bow, the forward swivel is behind the middle ramrod pipe. Instead of resting against a ramrod pipe this position allows the swivel to block the ramrod channel when the rifle is tipped upright. The ramrod pipes have some visible epoxy around the body of the pipes. The ramrod is fitted with a flared tip at the muzzle end and tapered to a 5/16" brass tip with 10-32 threads for accessories. The sideplate is polished bright and hand engraved with a traditional shell design around the rear lock bolt. The forward bolt is a short wood screw and does not engage the lock plate. The buttstock is shaped with a square cheek with stepped edge. A engraved nickel silver star is inlaid flush with the cheek. Raised and incised carving decorates the area behind the cheek piece.

Ignition is provided by this well tuned Siler flint lock, which has a strong mainspring. The lock has a Germanic style with a octagon pan, chamfered plate and pointed tail. The lock is finished bright and head engraved with a decorative border and folk art scrolls. We recommend using our best English 3/4" hand knapped flints for use with this lock. The single trigger is pinned high to provide good leverage against the sear.

This smoothbore is used with some handling marks and aged patina on the octagon-to-round barrel. The bore is bright and has been well maintained. 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.
