Lehigh County, Shimmel (barn gun)
Guns of this type were often built by master gunmakers of the Golden Age to provide a good shooting weapon at a very modest price. Following in that tradition, this gun is built with the architecture of a Lehigh Valley gun, a good quality 7/8” straight 50 Cal. Green Mountain barrel 42” long, A Jim chambers Large Siler lock and Davis double set triggers. There is no butt plate, side plate or entry pipe. The rifle is elegant in its simplicity and architecture. The only embellishment is a small carving of the Lehigh Valley “Indian Princess” at the front of the trigger guard. A great shooter and a joy to carry in the field.
