My Personal Rifle (Project 27)


I built this rifle for myself to replace a rifle that I had built a few years earlier. A visitor to the Flintlock Shop talked me into selling my original rifle.


This was an exceptional piece of stump wood curly maple. I felt the wood was beautiful just the way it was so I didn’t put any silver inlays or wire in the butt stock.DSC_0274DSC_0277

 I made the lock plates and the frizzen plates out of Damascus steel. 




The moon in the cheek piece and the inlays in the fore-stock are sterling silver. The front sights are tipped in 24k gold.
