Early Virgina Rifle 1750 - 1780

Bean Tennessee Stock

This fullstock Early Virginia rifle is of early period styling seen on the frontier during the French and Indian and Revolutionary wars. It is a working man stock and was occasionally referred to as a “smooth rifle” when fitted with a smoothbore barrel and mounted in plain furniture. Our standard pre-shaped stock is offered with a straight octagon barrel channel and rod channel with drilled ramrod hole; and is not inlet for lock, triggers or cut for buttplate. Inletting options below for lock, triggers and swamped barrel. Specify barrel and rod size when ordering. Inletting for Getz, Rice or Colerain swamped barrels up to “C” weights in lengths up to 42” available for an additional swamped barrel inletting charge. See below for all available inletting options. Specify barrel and ramrod size when ordering. Right hand only, but by removing the cheek piece this rifle can be made left-hand and still be appropriate in styling. Left hand Germanic style locks by L&R and Siler are available. For stocks cut for 44” barrels, an extra charge for oversize wood, custom set- up and oversize shipping will apply.  Please call for special arrangements.
