J. Armstrong (Emmitsburg School)
J. Armstrong Rifle
John Armstrong was a very fine gunsmith who worked in the Emmitsburg, MD, area in the early 1800s.  Surviving examples of his work show he was a master metal and wood worker and an artistic engraver.

Armstrong built rifles of only the best available materials of his time.  His long and slender guns were marked by a prominent comb, and his carving is distinguished by an unusual attention to detail and a flowing series of C-scrolls.   Armstrong produced detailed inlays and his patchboxes were beautifully engraved.   He apparently preferred to work with good quality curly maple for stocks.

Armstrong' s long rifles are shining examples of what the American Long Rifle can be.   Careful attention to detail, long and flowing lines, artistic stock carving and precise engravings combine to make this type of rifle a work of art.

Armstrong's work offers a model-and a challenge-to modern craftsmen.  To attempt to reproduce this style rifle you will need a variety of skills, and stock and parts of the highest quality.  The results should more than repay your investment.
