The State of Idaho Rifle

This rifle was made from a blank piece of ash. Teddy Roosevelt planted the ash tree at the Idaho Capitol building in 1906. The tree was cut down in 2007, for the remodel of the capital building. The barrel is a Rice Gun Makers barrel, the flintlock was donated by Chambers Flintlocks.

I made the trigger, ramrod thimbles, side plate, sights, and nose cap, all screws are hand made, including all wood screws.

The trigger guard and butt plate were rough castings. The only power tool used in the building of this rifle was a band saw to cut out the stock profile. The 44 inch swamped barrel was entirely hand inlet. The stock was scraped - no sand paper was used; It was lightly stained using a home made vinegar stain. It has 30 hand rubbed coats of warm beeswax.

It took me almost 2 years to complete the project. It is now on display at the Capital Building.
