A. Verner Rifle

Andrew Verner was a fine gunsmith who is believed to have lived and worked in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

The stock we produce is based on one of the existing examples of his work. The buttplate is relatively flat, the stock is somewhat thick with a wrist that is wider than it is high. The comb of the stock is straight and the underside is slightly curved.

Verner is credited by some collecting authorities with beginning the Roman-nose profile that was also used by later gunsmiths.

The original rifle we used for our design had a heavy barrel. The wide triggerguard was fastened with a screw. The trigger is beautifully scaled and flows back toward the butt. This rifle was carefully carved with flowing lines into the stock, and it included a silver eagle inlay. The wood used in the stock complemented the workmanship and was a fine grade of curly maple.

Building a rifle of this type will give you an appreciation for the craftsmanship of the early masters. The rifle design makes the wood seem to flow into the metal. This rifle deserves your careful and attentive efforts. When you successfully finish building this gun you will possess a firearm that will be envied and admired. It will be a work that future generations should cherish.
