Rev War period Ky Rifle (1770-1790) By Wolfgang Haga, Reading Pa.
Barrel has a nice dark brown patina.. Rear portion of the barrel has some deep pitting around the touch hole. Lock may have been replaced, however it is the correct style and has been aged to properly match the barrel. Brass with nice untouched patina. Stock has been varnished over maintaining the original dark brown patina that has built up over the years. Ramrod is a replacement. Overall an excellent example of a Rev-War made rifle.
