#512- Dimmick St. Louis Plains Rifle

Dimmick St. Louis Plains Rifle in plain tough walnut and iron, Green River RifleWorks barrel 54 caliber 1-66 twist deeply rifled for round ball with under-rib, traditional flat spring percussion lock supported by barrel bar and Dimmick’s English style long tang breech double bolted to double lever DST, steel thimbles and 7/16″ ramrod, long bar DST in traditional Dimmick hooked guard, beaver-tail cheekpeice for right hander, Plain open rear and silver on brass base front sights, double fore-arm keys supported by steel ovals, pewter forend tip. I have come to beleive that the Dimmick design was in some ways superior to the Hawken, even though the Hawken is more famous. What I like is the massive Manton style breech with the lock supported by the barrel bar, a far stronger arrangement than the Hawken. This rifle is the epitome of traditional.
