Maker Marked ANTIQUE Percussion AMERICAN LONG RIFLE
Full-Stock Kentucky Rifle Circa 1850s
Here we present an antique American Full-Stock Long Rifle, made circa the 1850s. This rifle bears the name of the maker, “E. FERREELL”, on the top flat of the fully octagonal barrel. Rifle manufacture in the mid-to-late 19th Century was rapidly changing over from thousands of craftsmen all over the United States and on the Frontier making and selling their wares, to the large factories with standardized assembly lines and modern manufacturing techniques. Many makers’ names of the so-called Kentucky long rifles have been lost over time. This rifle is one such example.
The overall condition is good. The metal surfaces are dark with age. The markings are clear and legible. The stock is in good shape with some slivering on the right side along the middle portion of the barrel. The bore is dark with good rifling. The action on this rifle is functional.
