Silver Rifle

Here are some pictures of the Masonic Silver Rifle up for raffle.

"Peter Alexander’s latest creation, the 2011 Masonic Pennsylvania rifle, was created in the style of gunsmith David Morton. David Morton worked as a clockmaker and gunsmith in the early 1800’s in West Newton, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. The newest addition to the series, the Masonic Pennsylvania rifle has a 47.5” swamped Ed Rayl .45 caliber barrel. A beautiful tiger maple stock boasts 23 sterling silver inlays, with over 3 feet of sterling silver wire inlay enhancing the unique raised relief carving on the stock. All of the rifle’s furniture is finely crafted from sterling silver including the nose cap, ramrod thimbles, sights, patchbox, toe plate, trigger guard and butt plate. The rifle carries a Bob roller lock and double set triggers created by Peter A. Alexander."
