REVOLUTIONARY WAR ERA PENNSYLVANIA/KENTUCKY WIPER

$290.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 30-2253

Shaffer, Routledge, Dorsey illustrates a wiper very similar to this in Volume 1 of their Gun Tools on page 101, top plate, No. 1. The shank is long, with threaded base to screw into a rod and the tines are flat and begin their twist over a tall arch. In this case the base is forged flat and is given a decorative incised line.

Accurate shooting requires a clean bore and these were a key part of any rifleman’s gear. This is dead-real, period example, and not an aged reproduction from a modern black-powder shoot or from one of several modern blacksmiths who seem to have access to old iron, few scruples, and a penchant for forgery. This would look great with a rifle, hunting bag, horn, or gun tool and accouterment display.  [sr] [ph:m]
