Antique BACK ACTION Half Stock .36 Caliber PERCUSSION American LONG RIFLE
ENGRAVED Kentucky Style Long Rifle
Here we present an antique Unmarked Engraved Back Action Half Stock Percussion Long Rifle, made circa the mid-19th Century. Its stout octagonal barrel is in .36 caliber, large enough to take small to medium sized game or to defend the homestead against unwanted aggression. Rifle manufacture in the mid-to-late 19th Century was rapidly changing over from thousands of craftsmen all over the United States and on the Frontier making and selling their wares, to the large factories with standardized assembly lines and modern manufacturing techniques. Many makers’ names of the so-called Kentucky long rifles have been lost over time. This is one such example.
The overall condition is good. The barrel has been refinished in blue. The action is excellent. The bore is serviceable with visible rifling and some oxidation—will clean up better. The stock has some cracking around the side plate on the left side and a split at the barrel tang. All is stable.
Own the original! This is a legitimate antique and not a reproduction.
Barrel is 32 inches.
