Full-Stock Flintlock Kentucky Rifle

.51 caliber, 42" octagonal-to-round barrel with baluster turned rings at the transition, no S/N. Browned finish, brass furniture, faux striped hardwood stock. Barrel signed S + B in script. Lightly engraved commercial flint lock is unmarked with a roller frizzen and waterproof pan. Flat goose neck cock appears to be an old replacement. Rifle appears to be in original flint. Four-piece brass patchbox, semi-pistol gripped triggerguard, single trigger, fixed notch rear sight, brass blade front sight. Old wooden ramrod secured by two faceted sheet brass thimbles and an entry pipe.


Good. Metal with a moderately oxidized brown patina, lock with scattered pitting. Mechanically functional, extremely dirty bore whose condition is impossible to determine without an aggressive cleaning. Stock with scattered bumps and dings but free any significant repairs.
