Hershel House for Doug Delsemme

Hershel House, 2009 left-hand “Woodbury School” longrifle. Signed “H. House Woodbury”. Relief carved, with hand forged iron mounts with tasteful silver overlays. 54 cal. swamped Colerain barrel, and Chamber’s lock. Companion maple wood (from stock blank) handled rifleman’s knife and small patch knife fitted to reside inside the patch box. Rifleman’s knife silver escutcheon inscribed “Oh Ye of Little Faith”- a little H. House humor for me once doubting completion of the gun.
