We are currently building a custom Frederick Sell rifle. This rifle features one of our custom wrought iron barrels and will be fully mounted in all hand-made hardware using 18th Century technology. We currently have this rifle to the "In the White" form, and have just begun with the decoration. So far the features on this rifle are as follows; Wrought Iron Barrel with Hand Made Brass barrel keepers. Hand Forged Wrought Iron Breech Plug. Sand cast trigger guard and buttplate both done here in our shop. Hand-forged trigger and trigger plate. Hand made pierced sideplate made from cast sheet brass. Hand swaged and filed ram rod pipes and a two piece swaged muzzle cap. Hand Made Four Piece Brass Patchbox with pierced sideplates. Hand Made toe plate with hand made patchbox release. Hand Made Sterling Silver Moon inlay in the cheekpiece. All architecture was carefully done to mimic the original Frederick Sell rifle even down to the ram rod tip with the flared brass button.
