Early Pennsylvania Rifle by Ken Moors

 .50 caliber

Ken Moors lives in Edenton, NC and does very nice work considering he has only built 12 guns so far.  This one is a generic eastern Pennsylvania style circa 1740-1750. The stock of curly maple. It has a .50 caliber 42" long Green Mountain barrel. The lock is a Chambers Deluxe Siler. Very well made with tight inlets and well executed carving and engraving. The gun has been aged and distressed to give it an antique appearance. Weight is 7? lbs and the pull is 14". Very nice balance and overall feel to the gun.
Personally I like Ken's work a lot and have been working with him to refine his work.
