Custom Virginia Rifle

Many surviving "Early Virginia" rifles exhibit a very pleasing blend of both German and British traits and characteristics.  This cultural amalgamation results from German trained Gunsmiths mostly out of Eastern Pennsylvania migrating into the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia to service the needs of the English residents on the Virginia frontier.  The rifle shown here is our interpretation of this style.  We designed and built this rifle NOT as a "copy" but rather as a representation of this important cultural influence during the evolution of the American Longrifle.
