38” barrel, .45bore-percussion This fine Perry County PA. long rifle is maker stamped on top of the barrel flat: John. Shuler Liverpool PA. John Ramsey Shuler was a second generation gun- smith who followed in the footsteps of his father John Shuler Sr. John Jr. lived in a home on Market in Liverpool PA and is considered the most prolific of the family gunsmiths. This is an extremely fine but rather unadorned Perry County product and features a full octagon barrel with set rear sight and dove tail brass front sight. The percussion lock was manufactured by Leman of Lancaster, PA., one of the more famous lock makers of the era. Aside from the patch box, a simple silver inlay on left side and silver thumb piece, the remainder of the stock is unadorned of metal decorations. It has a full stripe maple stock with an interesting checkered wrist pattern, has a brass butt plate with a brass toe plate,(1” missing at base) and a brass trigger guard with double set triggers. The patch box exhibits tasteful engraving, the barrel and lock are a pleasing patina mixed with soft gray. An excellent example of the quality work that was being produced in the Perry County tradition in the early to mid-19th century.
