ITHACA, NEW YORK LONG RIFLE L. COON .38 FRONTIER PIONEER HOMESTEAD Antique
.38 Caliber Octagonal Barrel Patchbox
Here we present an antique L. Coon Long Rifle, made circa the mid-19th Century in Ithaca, New York. Levi Coon Sr. and his son Levi Coon Jr. were gunmakers in Ithaca in the mid-1800s.
This rifle’s stout octagonal barrel is in .38 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 rifle is one such example.
The overall condition is good. Robust action. The bore is clear and in very good shape for its age. This example sports a solid stock. The wrist repairs are stable. “L. COON” marked barrel. Lightly engraved lock. Unique patchbox style.
