Rifle by Jim Parker

This rifle was influenced by a Charlie Bean rifle in Jerry Nobels collection. I hand forged the butt plate nose cap and thimbles and patch box. I did a couple of You Tube videos of making the patch box please take a look and let me know how I did. Search for making a Charlie Bean Patch Box. The triggerguard was a casting that I modified to match the guard on Jerry's rifle. The triggers were a set of Bob Roller triggers that I modified and the lock is an L&R that was a special lock that was made up by LC himself for the customer. The barrel was made by Ed Rayl.
