Original U.S. Pennsylvania Long Percussion Conversion Rifle with Set Trigger and Figured Stock - c.1840

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This very attractive rifle originally started life as a Flintlock long Rifle with 7 groove rifling. Around the 1840's it was converted to the Percussion cap system. It was manufactured with a "Set Trigger" consisting of two triggers, setting the the hair trigger with the rear trigger and actually discharging the rifle by barely touching the front trigger making the weapon, in capable hands, a very accurate weapon.

The rifle has a Full Tiger Maple wood stock showing a very pleasant stripe pattern, brass mounts with a plain Ownership disk inlaid into the Butt Stock. The lock plate is well worn showing only the end of the Maker's or origin location name, which looks to be MASS., for Massachusetts.

The rifle comes complete with wood ramrod, though the rear sight is missing its folding leaf. Measures 51" in overall length. The set trigger very sensitive and may need slight internal adjustment. To use, first the rear trigger is pulled back. Then the hammer is cocked, and the lock fired using the front trigger.

Fully cleaned and ready to Display.
