1817 Common Rifle (516 B)

In 1817, the rifle was redesigned with a 36" barrel and more drop in the stock , the first pattern rifles were completed at Harpers Ferry. They sent them to the four contractors Derringer, Johnson, North, and Starr. These are extremely well designed and balanced rifles. They were used in almost all conflicts up to and including the Civil War. They were still listed in the Bencia, California arsenal in the 1860’s. The 36" round barrel is available in .54 caliber. We even have the long range rear sight for the late models. This was one of the finest handling U.S. Rifles ever made. The 1814 and 1817 common were both originally designed to take a bayonet but only a few were produced. George Hofmann has one of the original bayonets and is allowing us to reproduce it, we should have it ready by this summer.
