Nicholas Beyer Folk Art Rifle

This rifle is a copy of what is perhaps Nicholas Beyer’s finest work.  After apprenticing and probably working with J. P. Beck, Beyer came into his own.  He developed a style using  fanciful birds and a Dutchified rococo style of carving.

This rifle is stocked with a beautiful closely grained piece of curly maple stained a colonial red brown.  A 44″ 50 cal. Colerain barrel is fired by a large Siler lock built by Jim Chambers.  The barrel is fitted with a White Lightening vent and is given an aged appearance as is the brass and mountings.
