41-1/2" barrel in .48 bore-percussion. Many collectors of Pennsylvania rifles consider the Lancaster school some of, if not the, finest manufactured. This rifle was manufactured by Abraham Henry and has his signature “A.H.” stamped on top of barrel with four dots. The slender full octagon barrel features a fixed rear sight and a brass blade front. The lock markings are not visible. The rifle was converted during the period of use to fire the more reliable percussion. The beautifully finished striped stock has three barrel wedges with no plates, has three brass thimbles, brass forend tip, brass trigger guard, brass buttplate, brass toeplate. Left side of stock has the small Pennsylvania cheek piece. The patchbox is finely engraved, as is toeplate. The barrel and lock are a smooth grey-brown patina. Tang screw is burred. Stock is excellent with original finish. Brass patchbox appears to have been cleaned at one time. Beautiful early Lancaster, Pennsylvania long rifle, converted during period of use.
