A classic "Southern" or "Tennesee Poorboy" .40 cal flinter from the workshop of Jack Garner, now retired from Tennesee Valley Manufacturing-no more of these to be had. Well cared for (I would call it "Excellent"), cleaned and lubed with Ballistol, near perfect mechanically with a few minor handling dings in the darkly mellowed maple stock, this rifle is a fine example of the custom long-riflemaker's art. Signed by the maker, this is a simple yet elegant work, with the iron furniture, long square triggerguard, single trigger, no ramrod entry pipe, and lack of adornment typical of the late 1700's--early 1800's Southern Mountaineers rifle. I believe, not certain, that it sports a Siler lock--typical of Garner's quality work. Ignition, the few times I have fired it, has been fast and sure through the stainless-steel hex-nut lined flash hole. I have included a fine set of accessories, including a matched set of powder horns, one each for the priming and the main charge, a loading block, pan brush, and spare flints. Of course, no FFL required on BP firearms, but you must understand and comply with your local laws. Successful bidder will be responsible for actual shipping charges, not to exceed $25. Thank you, and good bidding.
