Antique Shreckengost Muzzleloaders

Gathering information and photos for a book on the Western PA muzzleloader builder Wm. Shreckengost who made rifles in Putneyville PA from 1840 to 1880s. Here is what they look like. Any info appreciated.

Re: Antique Shreckengost Muzzleloaders

Thanks for sharing the photos of these unique muzzleloaders. The bottom, swivel-breech specimen is my favorite, and that is simply because as a small time builder, I find that type of build to be absolutely intriguing.

Thanks for the fine photos. The, amazing drop-at-heel, which these western Pa. rifles exhibit, is quite unique.

PADingo, I am doing a very detailed study. I will take any information available. Old newspaper articles, family stories, photos, maps, details of their rifles, anything at all. Thanks
