Poor Boy

Poor Boy

This rifle just came off the bench today.  It’s a .54 caliber Poor Boy.  Now some of you might say, “Wait a minute! Poor Boy’s don’t have sliding wooden patchboxes!” To that I say, “Anybody still chasing elk and deer at 84 years of age can have a rifle built any way they’d like!”

This iron-mounted rifle has a 42″, C-profile Rice barrel with round-bottom rifling.  Ignition is provided by a left-hand Siler lock.  The owner has named her after his dog who was his constant companion for seventeen years. “Gracie” leaves for Colorado Monday morning.
