Practice plate


Early Iron mountain Virginian


This rifle is a contemporary piece based on early iron mountain Virginian rifle. The rifle has a .36 cal. Rice barrel on an early frame. It has a large Chambers lock. Early wide butt, and set triggers. I've done several of these in the past. They make nice, small squirrel rifles for the customer. It's like having the best of both worlds, and early rifle in a small caliber in which you hardly ever see.
