Early York Rifle

This rifle by Shane Emig was built style York Co gunsmiths and exbits features of rifles seen during the Rev War period.  It features a one off custom lock made from castings that were reworked and refiled to produce a unique and visually pleasing flintlock.  The rifle features a custom wrought iron barrel with hand forged iron breech plug.  The trigger, trigger plate, lock bolts and tang screw were all hand forged as well.  The buttplate, sideplate and trigger guard were sand cast here at the shop from soft yellow brass.  The ram rod pipes were rolled from sheet brass and are all hand filed and polished.  Both front and rear sight were also completely crafted by hand, with the rear sight being made from wrought iron and the front made from brass.
