Martin Rizer

 

This rifle is from Cumberland, Alleghany County, Maryland is made by Martin Rizer, son of gunsmith John Rizer. It shows a lot of the Shenandoah Valley influence which would be expected from the the Valley gunsmiths moving up the road through Cumberland. It is a good example of the work from that area. It is from our CD entitled "Maryland Rifles" Issue VII.

The Martin Rizer Rifle that was posted on Feb 1st was photographed at a Lake Cumberland Show.
