    This Homer Dangler Cal. 50 Rifle was built in the white and sold in FL. It reflects Homer's perception of the Plain service rifles which won fame in war and the field as the true "Longrifle". This rifle's Getz.42" swamped bll. was shortened to Homer's 36" specifications. Makes for a very well balanced 50cal. rifle. More contemporary for later "Western Mounted Use."

    Attached is Provenance E-mail received from Homer Dangler himself in response to my inquiry as to the J.P. Beck Rifle which was withdrawn from consignment sale with Track of the Wolf. I am offering for direct sales first for a very limited time and then consigning to Track of the Wolf again where they will need additional price increase.

    "James, the description sounds like one of my rifles in the white.
    To do one with a 36" barrel I just cut the front off a 42" swaped barrel which left a little swamp.
    I have a star punch I have used for may years punching 8 stars on the muzzle.
    I sign the unfinished ( in the white) guns with my initials H+L+D in script letters and those I completed I sign H+L+Dangler in script.
    I also do a wavy line with small cuts before and after my signature.

    I am still building and I do it mostly in my winter home at Pine Island Fl just west of Ft. Dyers.
    I suggest using 50 grains of FFFG black powder at 25 and 50 yards and 75 grains at 100 yards or for deer hunting and I asure you it will shoot better than you can hold.
    The gun will last your lifetime trouble free.

    Enjoy the rifle,
    Homer"


    This is an additional quote from Homer's web site re: American Longrifles Plain Vs. Fancy

    "I feel the Kentucky rifle is a beautiful work of folk art, not to be compared to the fine European guns made for royalty, which were re-pleat with silver wire and precious stones.

    I strongly hope that in the years to come the contemporary builders of the Kentucky rifle keep it true to form and not co-mingle too much with the ornate English designs. Very few Kentucky rifles had silver wire, and most had none.
    "

    This rifle is very plain, it is also very functional, and a worthy example of Homer Danglers handiwork
