The home of the Lehigh Co. Flintlock Rifle


With this being a custom shop , working one on one with every client it
is really hard to come up with a set price list because every rifle is
different from the next . One person wants a straight barrel with a nice
piece of wood while the next wants a swamped barrel and sliding wood box
but a plain stock !! ect., ect.
So what I come up with is a base rifle price starting with a "Schimmel"
and ending with a price for a full blown , tweeded out gun .
After coming up with a general idea of what goes on the gun I will then
send you a written quote with all the parts and prices itemized , the
cost for general labor , carving if any is wanted and the final bottom
line price . This gives you time to look over the quote and if you need
to change or add anything feel free to do so .
I do require a deposit or money down "nonrefundable" to confirm the gun
order and purchase parts . The remainder must be paid upon delivery of
the rifle and or if you wish to make partial payments this is
satisfactory . The amount of deposit will be determined at the final
price of rifle .

With the "Schimmel" being the basis of the Allen Martin rifles the
prices and parts on these are as follows .
Curly maple stock , Siler flintlock , single trigger ,brass triggergaurd
and 2 ramrod pipes and misc. small parts -
with a straight barrel - $1700.00
With swamped barrel $1900.00

A full blown rifle with every detail in it's place , a super hard curly
maple stock , brass patchboxed , inlayed , raised carved , aged or
antiqued with the same feel of an original rifle !!!
Priced limited at $7500.00

All estiments and quotes are free and these prices listed on this page
subject to change . However the price on the quote is firm unless you
change or add to the gun .

To give you an idea of what the cost of the options are listed below .

Sliding wood patchbox with iron catch - $300
Simple 2 piece brass box with catch - $500

2 piece "dome lid" Lehigh / Allentown patchbox ............ $1200
Fancy engraved 4 piece brass box with catch - $800 - $1500
Handmade nosecap , sideplate & ramrod pipes - $200
Sett triggers - $100
Sterling Silver inlays start at - $50 each
Barrel keys - $40 each
Incise carving - $100 - $750
Raised carving - $250 - $1500
Pewter finish on Iron parts - $100

All guns custom built by Allen Martin are fitted to each individual for
proper length of trigger pull , drop in stock , castoff & ect.
Every stock is hand scraped "not sanded " at no extra cost !!

In addition to the custom guns I also offer services to assemble -
finish - carve - ect. , Jim Chambers rifles / fowlers kits .

You purchase the gun kit from Jim Chambers and he will have it delivered
directly to me and I try to complete the gun within 6 months after I
receive all the parts .

In the white - $500
Finish wood , iron & brass - $400
Carving , engraving & all other services - Priced on request

You can contact Jim Chambers at :
E-mail -
Phone (828) 667 - 8361

Due to BATF laws I now ask my clients to send a check or credit card
directly to Getz Barrel Co. for the purchase of the barrel and Jim
Chambers Flintlock LTD for the price of the lock used in your gun . Call
me if you any questions .

Thank you and God bless !!
