The early Lancaster rifle used a good grade of maple, sometimes with a
straight grain, but the later Lancasters exhibit a fine curly grain
"tiger stripe" that makes a Kentucky rifle such a distinctive piece.
The side plates on these later rifles are flat and very narrow, sometimes engraved. They often have a pronounced arch under the edge. The comb of the rifle is lower and there is less of a drop at the wrist.
Some of these Lancasters feature ornate relief wood carving and brass or silver inlays. The patchbox is usually engraved and is held by eight screws or more in many of these guns.
Brass and silver inlays, cut into forms and then engraved are often used, with a hunter's star, an eagle, a fish or some patriotic design being among the most common.
These inlays, combined with careful engravings, the carving and the slim lines of the rifle itself make the Lancaster Rifle pleasing to the eye and a pleasure to hold.
