WILKINSON Marked Full-Stock FLINTLOCK Long Rifle
Quintessential Frontier Rifle!
Here we present an antique Full-Stock Flintlock Long Rifle by J.H. Wilkinson, made circa the 1830s. 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 rifle features a full-length octagonal barrel in .52 caliber, supported by an attractive, full-length, striped maple stock. It features open rifle sights.
The overall condition is good. The iron parts are dark with age. The markings on the barrel are clear. The striped maple stock shows several small repairs as are not uncommon with these hard-used tools. The bore is virtually smooth and in good shape. The action is not currently functional as the cock will not hold. Nevertheless, this old rifle has earned its keep and is now a work of art rather than an implement.
