F-253 Fine Southern 40


This is the finished version of or K-43 Fine Southern Rifle inlet kit. It comes completely inlet for all the best stuff as you can see. This one is exceptional in the CM-4+ curly maple chosen for the stock.

It was recently finished for us by Kevin Blevins who specializes in several Southern style guns. This one is in 40 cal using a 13/16 x 42” Colerain Barrel with round bottom rifling inlet to this beautiful curly maple stock. It uses the lollipop tang unique to the southern style, with a matching side plate.

The lock of choice is the L&R classic flint offering a forged main spring, roller frizzen, rain proof pan and turned and polished bearing surfaces. It is tripped by RE Davis #4 double set triggers. It throws a shower of sparks into a drilled and coned vent located in the “sunrise” position slightly above the plane of the pan for lightning fast ignition.

This is not a poor boy so the trim includes all the extras of a true fine Southern rifle. This includes the butt plate, nose cap, entry thimble, side plate, and toe plate.

The CM-4+ stock has been stained a rich whiskey color and finished in hand rubbed oil.

The iron trim, barrel and lock have given a plumb brown matt finish so typical on these fine Southern rifles.

We’re happy to be able to offer it for your consideration at a modest $1599.
