Here's a great example of mid 19th Century American craftsmanship made by known American Gunmaker John Henry. This Ohio-style half stock rifle was made sometime between 1830 and 1850. It features a great walnut stock in good condition with the exception of a repaired crack in the front of the lock mortise (see piectures).
The lock is in good shape, and also appears to be made by Henry; a rare feature among sporting rifles from this area which typically feature mass-produced import locks. The lock works well and holds sold on full cock (this lock was made without a half cock; in order to function with set triggers).
The set triggers functions well.
The .40 caliber barrel is roughly 33" long and features a good bore. Overall the rifle measures in at over 50".
