Johanes Faber Rifle

This rifle is based off the Johanes Faber rifle.

This rifle features a 44″ Colerain barrel rifled in 50 cal and has a Chambers Virginia Lock.  With the exception of those two pieces the rest of the rifle exhibits all handmade mounts and hardware and is stocked from a blank of Curly Maple.  The sideplate is made from a piece of cast sheet brass that was cast here in our shop.  The trigger and the trigger plate were hand forged and hand filed and polished to shape and fit to the gun.  The handmade buttplate is made from soft yellow brass and was swaged and sculpted to form.  The batchbox cavity was hand drilled and chiseled square and the dovetails were hand cut.  The patchbox lid is made from one piece with hand cut dovetails and all hand sculpted moldings. The ram rod pipes were all hand rolled/swaged from sheet brass and all hand filed to shape.  The muzzle cap for this rifle is a one piece hand swaged cap with an integral ram rod groove.  The trigger guard was cast here in the shop from one of our custom patterns.

This rifle was built by Shane Emig and all hand engraved by Brad Emig.
