 Early Lancaster Rifle  

Grade 6 Maple stock; all brass furniture Double-set triggers; .50 Caliber swamped Getz barrel (1/66 twist); 3/8" ramrod, shop made-brass early lock.

This rifle persona will be a rifle representative of the  J. P. Beck school, except it will have my influence. By that, I mean the carvings and engravings will by my own styling.

(Go to the bottom of this page for links on how this rifle was built.)

Here are some photos and a couple fly-by movies (warning they may be big).
