ENGRAVED Antique Full-Stock .45 Percussion SMOOTHBORE Rifle PIONEER Era
Kentucky Style Rifle “HENRY PARKER/WARRANTED Lock
Here we present an antique Full Stock Percussion Conversion American Long Rifle, made circa the early 1800s and converted circa the mid-1800s. This rifle would have started out life as a flintlock, and converted sometime after the more reliable percussion firing system was introduced. Its stout octagonal barrel is in .45 caliber, large enough to take medium to large 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 rifle is one such example.
The overall condition is good. The action does not function as there is no hammer spring tension. Good bore if its age. The middle barrel band is missing. Absent ramrod. Markings are legible.
