This rifle is built in the style of J.P. Beck. It features a 38″ Colerain barrel in .54 caliber and a Chambers Golden Age lock that we re-worked to fit the project. This rifle has a lot of custom features while also incorporating some commercially hardware. The rifle features tapered pipes with matching tapered rod and hand made iron tip. Both sights were handmade along with the sideplatem, while the buttplate and triggerguard were sand cast. The “Whale Tail” four-piece brass box was done in the direct style of Beck with accute attention to detail on each individual feature including the cavity and release mechanism. All engraving was chased by hand with chisel and hammer. The star was hand craftedfrom sterling silver and hand engraved.
