Hello all,

Im afraid I need your collective help once again....


I need to source a good metal and wood replica, preferably from a UK seller, for display purposes of a pennsylvania long rifle.

I have found many websites that sell them, however every site only sells the shorter barreled plains version.....I am seeking one with a barrel length of about 40 inches, so overall length would be somewhere around 55 inches (140cm)


Does anyone know of anywhere I can find these at all, (as I said preferably a UK seller, as our gun laws are somewhat tight, and Id prefer not to import one if possible.)

Thanks all,

Andrew

Henry Krank sells the Ardesa Pennsylvania Rifle which has a barrel that's 40.25" long in the Traditions .50 version that's sold here in the U.S..
It's listed on the page below as model 1148P.
Are you looking for a model capable of shooting or a non-firing one? Percussion or flint?

Krank also sells inert long guns but I don't see a Pennsylvania Long Rifle listed:

Flintlock for sure, and a simple non firing replica is fine... ideally id love an original, but Ill wait until I find one for a good price. Thanks for those links, Ill have to update my FAC if I want the firing ones, but its an option....

Try a Jim Chambers kit. Replace the breechplug with a homemade one. You want it drilled all the way through so you can put a lampcord into your new lamp.
