Frederick Sell Flintlock
This is a Frederick Sell longrifle that I built in 2002. It has a 45 caliber 7/8" x 42"
Green Mountain barrel, Jim chambers lock, Davis set triggers, premium maple stock
with 15 coats of hand rubbed tung oil. It features antiques brass trim, chevron
nosecap, and German silver inlays, thumbpiece, and wire inlays. All engraving and
carving was done by hand. Four wedge pins retain the barrel, so it is easily removed.
The barrel to flashpan is perfect and there is no underlock flash. It has a removable
Ampco vent, and it is properly coned with very fast ignition with the Chambers lock.
If you own a Kindig book, the patchbox is on page #423 and the sideplate is on page
#420. The length of pull is 15 1/4", so it takes a tall fellow to shoot this one. I have
extensive photos of this gun, as well as photos as it was being built.
The barrel is hand lapped, and I have shot about 100 rounds through it. A half blind
guy like myself can get 5 shot groups in 1.25" center to center, so a good marksman
can make a real real shooter with it!
Note: This gun is NOT an exact duplicate of F. Sells work, as I do not believe in
copying them exactly.
