This is an almost exact copy of the fancy H.E. Leman rifle shown in Plate Nr. 228 of Kaufman's "The Pennsylvania-Kentucky Rifle. The patchbox and triggerguard are both engraved in the style of the original. The wrist is skipline checkered as was the original Leman. Also notice the toe plate and the little silver oval that were also the same as the original. However, the top flat of this one is signed, L. Moler. Also, the original had Faux Curl and this one has a fancy piece of maple.
$1500

I made this rifle over 15 years ago for my brother-in-law. He passed away in March and his wife wants me to dispose of it for her. I am not sure that this rifle has ever been shot. Spent all that time in a guncase in the closet.

I don't know if you remember or not but the original "Lyman Plains rifle" had a brass patch box almost identical to the one on your gun. I shot my very first big game animal with one.......you know I would buy everything you build if I had the cash......sad that the smooth rifle got away!........that would have been a good one to hand down to one of my sons. The militia musket is already going to James!
