Early & Transitional Gun 2
This rifle is a copy of the early work of Isaac Haines of Lancaster County.  The flat butt plate and domed patchbox lid are early details.  The heavy butt of the rifle offsets the weight of the 44 inch swamped 50-cal. barrel.  The figure of the wood in this rifle is outstanding.  The C scrolls carved to the rear of the heavy cheekpiece are typical of Haine’s work.  The brass furniture has been aged to make this gun look like a true vintage piece.
