J. Dickert Rifle (Lancaster School)
J. Dickert Rifle
The style of early rifles produced in the Lancaster area can be easily appreciated in the work of Jacob Dickert. This master gunsmith came to America around 1750, and produced rifles for the Continental Army after becoming a citizen.

Dickert was an influential gun builder who is credited by some authorities with giving direction to the development of the Kentucky Rifle.

The examples of his work that survive are very few, but there are indications he favored a relatively simple design. He used both incised and relief carvings and patchboxes were daisy-style and engraved. His boxes seem to have been marked with a design that looks like three adjoining mounds worked on the edge of the box nearest the hinge.

Dickert's rifles were sturdy, about five feet long, and about nine pounds in weight. The rifles were thick stocked and included a flat Buttplate and high comb.
