This Southern Mountain percussion longrifle appears to be unfired, but does have some small handling marks. Stocked in maple, dense and strong, with some figure in the butt and forend, this rifle has smooth oil finish, with a hand rubbed glow. The rifle is trimmed in browned iron furniture. With an overall weight of 7.9 pounds and a trigger reach of 14” this longrifle was built for today’s average size shooter. The top flat of the barrel is signed by contemporary maker Jackie Brown.

The .36 caliber Colerain barrel is 13/16" octagon by 42" overall length. Colerain rifle barrels are drilled from solid steel, cut rifled with six “round bottom" grooves with a 1 in 48" twist. Called “radius groove rifling", Colerain eliminates the sharp inside corner that accumulates fouling. Radius groove rifling cutters are a bit more expensive to make, but Colerain's customers agree that the accuracy, easy loading, and easy cleaning are worth the cost. The rear sight is dovetailed 10-1/2" from the breech. The iron blade front sight is dovetailed behind the muzzle.

The iron buttplate and decorative iron triggerguard are classic designs found on longrifles from Tennessee. A few very plain primitive Tennessee rifles omit the buttplate. This correct and sturdy buttplate was tightly inlet, and it will protect the end grain of the buttstock during hard use. The maple stock has a few minor handling marks, but otherwise appears as new. The barrel, lock, and all iron furniture are nicely browned with a non-glare matte finish that will not reflect glare in the woods, and will minimize heat mirage when target shooting. Hand rubbed and nicely finished, the dark brown color of the barrel, lock, and iron furniture do not show typical wear from firing and cleaning.

The bottom view reveals that no toeplate was fitted to this rifle. The iron triggerguard is retained with screws both front and rear. No ramrod entry pipe or muzzle cap are fitted in "poor boy" fashion. The ramrod is fitted with a steel tip with 8-32 threads for loading and cleaning accessories. The stock is shaped with a slightly recessed muzzle end, to allow an easy grip of the ramrod. The angular stock architecture and molded panels of the cheek piece are classic features of percussion Tennessee rifles. Nicely fitted and finished, this is a nice example of a Tennessee rifle.

Sure fire ignition is provided by the well known and very reliable Durs Egg percussion lock. This lock has the appearance of a late 18th century lock that would have been converted to percussion circa post 1830. The drum is fitted with a 1/4-28 threaded steel nipple. The lock is mated to a single trigger that is pinned high to provide good leverage against the sear. The trigger has a smooth release.

This is a correct and attractive example of a primitive Tennessee percussion rifle. Said to be unfired the stock has few handling marks, the bore looks bright and clean, and the brown finish shows no wear typical of heavy use. 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.
