This defarbed Jukar Spanish Long rifle was recently finished by Steve Krolick of Novelty Ordnance. It features a new one piece maple stock with faux "tiger striping"; a feature found on many original trade rifles from the early to mid 19th Century.
The .45 caliber barrel has had all the markings removed and has been nicely browned. "Tryon Philada" has been nicely stamped on the top barrel flat in order to replicate the trade rifles built by the famous Tryon Rifleworks in Pennsylvania.
The percussion lock closely emulates the mass produced trade locks of the mid 19th Century; and holds reliably on both full and half cock.
The furniture has been nicely polished and the bore is excellent with no rust or pitting.
This rifle would be the perfect choice for a frontiersman or Indian reenactor; it would also be a great hunting or target gun.
