Doc built repro of early wide-butted Lehigh Valley rifle in the style of Peter Neihardt. The barrel is a swamped ‘B’ weight Colerain in 50 caliber, 44″ long. The maple is tigered from one end to the other. The flintlock is a Chambers. single
trigger, domed side opening patchbox, sports extensive carving,
traditional in this style rifle.
The buttplate is 2 inches wide not including the built in lip for the patch box. The trigger guard is early classic Lehigh, wide and just fitting a single curled trigger. The sideplate has that classic arrow at its rear end, almost a signature of a Lehigh rifle. There is a considerable amount of carving and engraving. The early Lehigh guns tended to be plainer than the later ones. This an exception to the rule.
