JS BAKER Antique PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA FLINTLOCK Smoothbore LONG RIFLE
Full-Stock PENNSYLVANIA SMOOTHBORE
Here we present an antique Jacob S. Baker Pennsylvania Flintlock Long Rifle made circa 1830. Baker was a gunmaker in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania from somewhere around 1819 to 1859. Pennsylvania and Kentucky rifles were the order of the day and were essential tools for providing meat for the table, pest control for the crops and livestock, and protection against beast and man for the homestead. Rifles in this caliber were used for taking medium to large-sized game on the frontier to include elk and even buffalo. Frontiersmen, homesteaders, pioneers, trappers and traders would have used a rifle like this for all of the above.
This tiger maple stocked rifle features brass hardware and large, decorative brass patchbox. Octagonal barrel in .50 caliber with rifle sights. Smoothbore. Double set triggers. Again, these type rifles would have been crucial and utilitarian tools on the frontier for gathering food and protecting the homestead
The overall condition is good. The action is strong. The bore is smooth and remains in good shape. “J.S. BAKER PHIL” is marked atop the barrel. Here is a stunning American flintlock rifle to proudly display above the mantle!
