Early Lancaster Pennsylvania Rifle

circa 1765-1775
Model RK-1
RK-01
click image click hereto enlarge

Our Lancaster rifle represents the early but fully developed Lancaster style of architecture at its finest, with a high, straight comb, slender wrist and forestock, and wide-flat butt plate. Lancaster rifles were used all along the frontier in Pennsylvania before and during the Revolutionary War and were carried west into Ohio and Kentucky and south into Virginia, Tennessee and the Carolinas after the Revolution. The Lancaster is a pleasure to look at as well as to shoot.

Choose the 54 caliber for a perfectly balanced, light weight hunting rifle capable of taking all North American game. For a little more weight up front (for good off hand target work) I'd suggest the 50 caliber. Either will give you years of pleasure and service.

Note: Pictured brass box above not available.

Model RK-2

York County Pennsylvania lies just southwest of Lancaster and was home to many great gunsmiths such as George Schroyer, G. Eister, Martin Fry and others. Overall the York rifle is slightly smaller than the Lancaster which makes it ideal for those of smaller stature. The slender Getz barrel makes this rifle look wonderful with its long slim lines. It handles and balances perfectly. Frontiersmen such as Davy Crocket carried York rifles. If you are looking for a light-weight hunting rifle, the York is an excellent choice in 50 caliber. In 45, and especially in 40 caliber, the York is extremely accurate. This rifle will look great with either a brass or sliding wood patchbox.
