Bedford County flintlock Kentucky rifle made by Peter White who worked in Bedford County, Pennsylvania from 1803 to 1819 then from 1819 to 1834 in Uniontown, Fayette County, Pennsylvania. This rifle could have been made at one of the locations and is difficult to tell since White retained his Bedford County style even after his move to Uniontown. Gun has 44 -1/2" octagon .45 caliber barrel with rifle sights signed lightly "PETER WHITE" in script. Unmarked 2-bolt flintlock with single trigger control. Full curly maple stock with brass hardware including 4-piece brass patchbox with White's daisy finial patchbox and his signature bow and arrow engraved on patchbox lid. Stock has incised line carving around cheek with coin silver floral engraved cheek plate and coin silver thumbpiece. Comes with hardwood ramrod. CONDITION: Metal has brown pitted patina surface with lock being a reconversion. Wood has several repairs including a wrist repair and cracked forestock with some plastic wood around tailpipe with some slight burnout around lock from percussion days. Dark pitted bore with functioning mechanics. Rifle displays well and would be a good addition to any Bedford collection. DLM
