Mid 17th Century English Yoeman Hunting Rifle by Donald Whitehead for Robert W. Walker

Illustrated is a English Yoeman Hunting Rifle with elements of French, Dutch, German and Spanish architecture.  Mr. Donald Whitehead of Rolling Acres, Missouri built this rifle for me in 2005. The barrel is .54 in round bottom rifling at 46 inches by Riley Smith. Two inlays in ivory of a May Apple and Elizabethan Tudor Rose. The piece is surprisingly well balanced and I plan to take it on a mule deer hunt this Autumn.
