This rifle was built in 1972 as a custom order for one of our hunting buddies, Lynn. He wanted hand forged iron mounts and a fairly plain stock. Wallace used designs adapted from some Rockbridge & Augusta County, Virginia rifles for the carving and box. Jon Laubach and I worked on this rifle as well. Wallace left the shop to become Curator of Firearms and Mechanical Devices a few months after this rifle was completed.
Four years after this rifle was completed I made an iron mounted pistol for the same customer. Link to Pistol
