Chambersburg School Style Rifle
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.
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
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
