Schweitzer Rifle

Abraham Schweitzer of the Chambersburg School learned the gunsmithing trade in Lancaster, PA, in the late 1780's, established as a gunsmith in Chambersburg Franklin County, PA, in 1805.

In the late flintlock period that is the 1820's and 1830's, Chambersburg rifles took on the appearance of our stock shown here.

The butt stock of Schweitzer rifles exhibited profiles that have straight lower lines and straight combs. The front end of the comb does not lie far above the line of the wrist.

Abraham Schweitzer was a first-rate designer and carver of rifle stocks.
