Southern Mountain Rifle by Colin MacCrea

I just completed this custom built Southern Mountain rifle. It has a 42" Rice Southern Classic 45 caliber barrel, and a Davis Late Ketland flintlock. All parts are hand made except the lock, barrel, screws, and touch hole liner. There is an 1/8" castoff and a 13 3/8 length of pull. The chevron muzzle cap is pewter. All that remains is to sight it in. Just in time for deer season.
