I made this rifle in 1973 in the style of some made in Wythe County, Virginia in the first quarter of the 19th century. The bird finial box with the hinge lapped on the outside is often associated with the Honaker family and originals are known in both iron and brass. Double pipes and step toe stock profile are also found on Honaker rifles.
Siler lock and Bob Paris barrel. This barrel was browned in keeping with the later period of the rifle.
