Original U.S. Pennsylvania Tiger Maple Long Rifle with Set Trigger and Lock by Moore c. 1835

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This just came out of the attic after a hundred years of storage, together with a couple of hundred other guns. Here is an octagonal barreled Rifled "Kentucky" style rifle, which more correctly is known as a Pennsylvania Rifle. The Rifled .36 caliber octagonal barrel is 35" long and the rifle measures 51" in overall length.

The percussion lock looks to be a British "Trade" lock dating to the 1830's, made by the English Gunsmith WILLIAM MOORE of 78 Edgware Road in London. There is some lovely engraving on the plate and hammer. The barrel is fitted with a very nice "buckhorn" style rear sight, and a standard front sight.

The stock is 1/2 stocked and the rifle is all brass mounted, except for the nose cap, which is zinc. The wooden ramrod is also fitted with a zinc cap. The stock is made completely of lovely "Tiger Stripe" flamed maple, and is really great looking, having been stained to bring out the grain.

We feel this rifle started life as a Percussion weapon, and not a conversion from Flintlock. Interestingly the rifle has been, since new, fitted with a "set trigger" depressing the rear trigger first until it clicks and just touching the front trigger discharges the weapon, hopefully with great accuracy. 

A most attractive attractive Pennsylvania Long Rifle, ready to display!
