Lancaster School

Rifles of this school are my favorite. The sleek lines of their architecture encourage the eye to smoothly flow from muzzle to buttplate.

Patchboxes from this school can be sliding wooden or brass. Those of brass many times depicted a daisy head finial and rococo scrolls along its edges. Relief and incised carving accent the beautiful and flowing lines the architecture of this rifle has to offer.

Notable gun builders whose works were very influential are Jacob Dickert and Isaac Haines.
