FLINTLOCK KENTUCKY RIFLE - ANTIQUE KENTUCKLY RIFLE WITH HEAVY BARREL BY G. FEDER. - Lot #3222

This is a really fine Kentucky Rifle and one made by a desirable and rarely found maker, G. Feder of Dauphin County, Pa.. The gun is about 58" overall with a 43", 45 cal. barrel and it's heavy. The architecture of the gun is wonderful as are the carved patchbox and the brass treatment to the left side of the stock behind the cheek-piece, all of which show delicate engraving. The gun also has 15 or so silver inlays. The best part is the wood. One of the most beautiful stocks I've ever seen. An orangey-red color, the finish is nearly 100% intact and over a wonderful tiger-striped piece of wood. This gun had been converted to percussion when I got it and I had it re-converted to flint. I picked this up while Kim and I were walking back to our car at the end of the Bushy-Run Display Rifle Show in February. The man who had owned it for several years arrived at the show after it closed and was getting out of his car when we approached ours. I asked to take a peak and after some discussion, he said he was interested in finding a buyer but got to the show too late. I was happy to help him out. If you've never heard of this show, it's a tiny little display-only show for Kentucky Rifle enthusiasts held at the Bushy Run Battlefield, the site where Colonel Henry Bouquets' force of soldiers and riflemen met the Indian Chief Pontiac in battle on their way to Fort Pitt in 1763. It's a great park and a nice show, just tiny as all get-out. Bring food or you'll starve to death.
