This is a really nice untouched Lancaster, Penn. rifle. with that look of years of exposure to cigar smoke while hanging in a gunroom . The rifle originally started life as a Flintlock and was converted to percussion during it's period of use. The lock is a single screw original percussion lock and the second sideplate screw was kept rather than filled in. The lock interior parts are warn and won't hold the hammer in cock position. The barrel is 43" long and is .60 cal. All the wood on the stock looks original and with the exception of minor glueing of a few small splittered pieces is all there. The curly maple stock has a beautiful curl to it and has a wonderful reddish-black look. There's a incised carved squiggle line design on both sides of the forestock with a double line border running the length of the forestock to the muzzle. The only thing on the whole rifle that has been touched is the acorn inlay by the check piece has been cleaned possibly to find the name of the original owner. This is one of the better Kentucky's to come to market in recent years.
