Klette Rifle of Virginia

This rifle was based on the early Virginia rifle made by F. Klette. The original rifle was made in brass but I made this rifle with iron fittings. I made everything on this rifle except for the barrel and the lock. It has a 44" Rice barrel in 54 cal. a beautiful red maple stock that I stained with Aqua Fortis and finished with a hand rubbed Linseed oil.
