Here is a reproduction of a Lehigh rifle maybe by famous maker Dubbs, but previously attributed to Haines by Kindig. There is a C weight Colerain 44″ swamped barrel in 50 caliber in a AAA maple stock, lots of color! the flintlock is a Chambers, the trigger single as were most Lehigh Valley rifles, the patch box is a side opener with a spring loaded
button in the middle of an engraved flower on the buttplate return. The chevron muzzle cap and the floral trigger are both nice touches. Sorry you can’t see the patchbox engraving.
The carving and engraving patterns was taken from an early Lehigh rifle, similar to what Dubbs would have done, indeed if not done by him. The original rifle is fitted with
similar imported brass furniture as found on another signed Dubbs rifle.
