The following items are all for sale; if you do not find what you are looking for, please contact me to commission one.

1. Chambersburg School Style Rifle  This is a replica of a rifle built by "John Noll". He built rifles, pistols and swords in Washington Township, Franklin County between 1800 and 1820. The bird is a kind of trademark of his. He used it many times. This is a 50 Caliber, with a 45 inch swamped barrel. Price $10,000.00.

2. This rifle is a combination of the finest characteristics of three rifles built by Jacob Kuntz of Philadelphia. It is 50 Cal. with a 45 inch swamped barrel. The silver work is .999 pure silver. The Ivory inlays are very old Ivory my grandfather had when I was a boy and I'm 75 now. A lot of the same characteristics used by Kuntz can be found on rifles built by other rifle smiths in the Lehigh Valley area. We find intermarriage and strong ties between many gun-building families, as an example, in 1812 Jacob Kuntz married Barbara Newhard, niece of Peter Newhard, gunsmith of Allentown 1743-1813. Jacob Kuntz is buried with his wife in the Union Cemetery in Allentown Pennsylvania. Price $17,000.00

3. Replica of a Bucks County Rifle. The original was built by Andrew Verner circa 1780-1790, some think pre-revolution. This rifle is 50cal. with a 45 inch swamped barrel. (click to enlarge)  Price $7,500.00

4. This is a reproduction of a York County School of the Kentucky Rifles. The original was built by George Schroyer. This rifle is a 50cal. with a 45 inch swamped Getz barrel. Price $7,500.00
