This is a classic Gumph Kentucky rifle with a really beautiful curly maple stock. It has a Goulcher lock is a percussion conversion from it’s original Flintlock configuration. I tried to get some good pictures of the Gumph features such as the patchbox and the classic Gumph cheekpiece carving. The barrel is 37" long with a .54 cal. rifled bore. This rifle certainly had the punch to take down a bear. The forestock exhibits some repaired cracks in the wood but is all there with no replaced wood. A really good looking Lancaster Rifle from the 1820-1830’s (Mountain Man period) in the large caliber required to take down a Grizzley Bear.
