Lancaster County Style (Project Twelve)

These three rifles were built under contract for a father and two sons. The rifles were featured on the cover of Muzzle Blasts magazine in May 2004.

The wood for each of these rifles were cut from the same plank that I had been saving for ten years, waiting for a special job to use it for.

The patch boxes are an original design and are a combination of silver and brass.

All of the three rifles are 50 caliber. The single barreled rifles all have 38” swamped barrels, total weight 7 lbs. each. The swivels have a 32” straight tapered barrel, weighing only 8.5 lbs. each.

The rifles are contemporary in design, but reflect the Lancaster County Style. They are identical except one is a swivel breech and the others are regular single barreled rifles. The carving and silver wire inlays are also identical on each rifle.
