Overall length: 57". Barrel length: 42 - 1/2". Although unmarked, this converted to percussion Kentucky rifle can be most likely attributed to Karl George, the son of the Jacob George whose work has always been very desirable. Both of the Georges, father and son, worked in Albany Township, Berks County, PA. There are 10 brass inlays, including a quarter moon on the cheek piece. The curly maple stock has been refinished at one time, and this rifle was originally made as a flintlock. Some of the brass inlays are poorly done replacements. The brass four-piece patchbox has no engravings, nor do any of the other brass components.
