50 caliber with a ‘C’ size
Colerain octagon, swamped 38 inch barrel. Chambers best
flintlock, single trigger, as were all Gonters. Pull is near 13 3/4
inches, beautifully carved and engraved in traditional style. The rifle
is fitted up and ready to shoot. The AAA maple is gorgeous.
Gonter was a great maker, master of all the skills needed to produce classic guns. The swamped 38 inch barrel on this rifle makes it especially nice handling. You can see the original of this rifle in Kindig’s big book on the ‘Kentucky Rifle in its Golden Age’.
