Peter Alexander takes the reader through every step in building a longrifle, from shop setup and tools to engraving, carving and finishing. Begun in 1983 as a series of articles in MUZZLELOADER magazine, they have been compiled and extensively edited with new content and many new photos and drawings added. The most detailed and best illustrated guide to building longrifles. Over 40 years of practical building experience at your fingertips. Wirebound to lay flat on your workbench.

The Art of Building the Pennsylvania Longrifles by: Chuck Dixon, Dick Ehrig

Table of Contents

This hands-on guide will help the reader build or reproduce a fine flintlock or percussion longrifle using hand tools and old techniques developed by Chuck Dixon over fifty years of creating & shooting muzzleloaders. Beginning with a history of longrifle development and issues the builder should consider before purchasing parts, it covers every step in the building process, including carving the stock from a blank, inletting, engraving, staining and finishing. Generously illustrated and includes a glossary, bibliography and a special section of notes for the revised 2002 edition.
