.45 cal. Long Rifle

I built this one to hang over the fireplace, but it is a great shooter too. Has a Green Mountain barrel, Siler lock, curly maple stock and brass hardware.

Rifles from this period often had 42" to 44" barrels. With this length rifle, the trick is to have the balance point be where you hold the fore stock so it isn't too front heavy. This one is a 40" barrel Tennessee style percussion lock rifle. I build all my black powder rifles from various parts I collect at gun shows or online suppliers.
