Lot 51 Detail
American Fullstock Flintlock Tennessee Mountain Rifle
.58 caliber, 43-inch unmarked round barrel with punch-engraved scalloped decoration.
Open sights. Flintlock mechanism with roller frizzen spring. Lock marked: W &
G/Chance. Full walnut stock with steel furniture, the triggerguard and buttplate with
interesting and unique "finned" tangs. Silver heart-shaped wrist escutcheon
inscribed: W.W.M. 1821. Wooden ramrod. Without the grace and charm of a true Pennsylvania
rifle, this example does not have the traditional curvature found on Pennsylvania rifles
and was probably made in the Carolinas or East Tennessee. This rifle is very sturdy and
practical. The lock is English made as with many early American guns of this period. It is
completely original and not a re-conversion.
Condition: Fine to excellent condition for this type of rifle, the
steel with pleasant grey-brown age patina. Stock with age wear and showing several
hairline age cracks in buttstock with scattered wear and period repairs.
Note: The maker of the lock is William Chance & Son, Shops in London and
Birmingham. Made four-barrel pocket pistols, duelling pistols and later percussion naval
Estimate: $4000 - $5000
