Rifle by Steve Boyleston

This is a rifle I have just completed. Germanic style rifle 1760's era with stepped wrist, elongated lock panels, incised and relief carving, and a reshaped buttplate.  There is a late Tennessee trigger guard to replace the broken original one.  A large early style sterling silver oval on the wrist, and a small wide early style patchbox.  All parts are engraved in Rococo. Nitric Acid from Eric Kettenburgwas used for staining. Oil finish, 50 cal. Radius groove rifled barrel from John Getz. Relief carving around rear entry thimble.
