Edward Marshall's rifle is a well known early American longrifle.

Additional pages of views show details of Edward Marshall's rifle, including the muzzle, butt end of the buttplate, end of the sliding wooden patchbox, barrel markings, tang carving, sideplate, and triggerguard finials.The odd shapes of the triggers are clearly shown. Close inspection reveals a small moulding around the engraved lock plate.The early work of the famous Lancaster County gunmaker, Jacob Dickert, is shown in this volume.
