This Dickert-style long rifle has a 45-inch, .58 caliber, gain twist rifled, swamped octagon barrel by Bobby Hoyt. The 1760-1775 era early Germanic style lock by Chris Laubach is set in a curly maple stock. This piece includes a handmade tapered and horn-tipped ramrod.
The brass furniture includes a handmade fully engraved 4-piece patch box, side plate, handmade thimbles, and nose cap.
Beaver tails are relief carved. Relief carving surrounds the lock and barrel tang; is in front of the patch box; and fore and aft of the cheekpiece. Relief molding is on the fore and butt ends of the rifle with the fore-end molding transitioning into relief carving at the rear entry thimble.
Not only beautiful to look at, but a joy to shoot!
Thank you so much for your presentation the other day. You are a natural teacher. The kids just loved it. You captivated them.

You’ve built a magical gun ! It is truly my favorite. It fits me like an extension of myself. Great ! Great ! Job. I can’t praise you enough!
Just wanted to say thanks. You build a great longbow. Killed my first deer with it Wednesday night. She was an old long nosed doe that I have been playing cat and mouse with since the Sept 29th season opener.
Tim, shot my Feree yesterday. The rifle prints right where I need it to be. I’m a happy man 😊 ready to take it to the woods.
