Early Dickert Rifle In Progress

This is a current project that we are working on, based on the earliest work of Jacob Dickert that would have a heavy Moravian influence. The rifle features a wrought iron barrel, custom made lock, hand swaged buttplate, muzzle cap and ram rod pipes as well as a shop cast triggerguard and sideplate made from cast sheet brass. All iron components on the rifle have been hand forged and the double set triggers have been completely hand made from bar stock. This early rifle will receive full engraving on the brass patchbox as well as be completely decorated in early style carving. All work is done by Shane.
