Poor Boy

Rifles that were made for the working class, these “Schimmels” were built without the furniture found on rifles from other schools of the 18th Century.

These guns were built without a sideplate, toeplate, muzzlecap, and many times, buttplate. While a patchbox was not normally found on such a rifle, a sliding wooden patchbox was not unusual. Even without the furniture, these rifles are quite capable of producing fantastic groups.

Made with high quality parts, “Poor Boys” are a good alternative when looking for a gun that you won’t be afraid to take afield.
