Bucks County Rifle by Mike Gahagan

This rifle is new and unfired. It is made using top grade maple, custom lock and a 46" .50 cal Rice barrel. The all incised carving is in the areas of behind the cheek piece, barrel tang, on both sides of wrist and along the forestock. The silver star, thumbplate, toeplate and patchbox are engraved. The wood and metal has been given a slight patina. The stock has been scraped and burnished.

  3. According to Google the Chinese above is from Shu-Fang and says:
    "The most miserable life is halfway, the most tragic is the loss of confidence, the most regrettable waste of time, the most terrible thing is not perseverance."
    So we could name this rifle "Perseverance" because it has led to perfection
