J. Christoph Kuchenreiter, Germany. Fine .56 cal. Flintlock sporting rifle, ca. 1780. Weight: 7 ½ Lbs. Deeply rifled 28” octagonal Damascus steel barrel with good bore is gracefully tapered then swamped at the muzzle. Maker’s name inlaid in silver on the top flat just forward of the breech with the typical Kuchenreiter sunken gold poincon at the breech. Beautifully relief carved full length stock with sliding wooden patch box lid typical of the finest early Germanic sporting rifles. Brass mounts and single set trigger. Exquisite new, completely hand-made, lock by master gunmaker, Stephen Alexander, is of far superior quality to any original. Overall a superb serviceable hunting rifle by one of the worlds finest makers.
