Youth Tennesee Rifle
This is a .40 caliber Youth Early Transitional Tennessee Rifle. Notice the Carolina trigger guard and the early butt plate. This was an "Over the Mountain Rifle." The stock is Iowa Native Black walnut and the lock was a Chamber's Siler that was converted to a brass lock from some scrap brass laying around the shop.
