Beck flintlocks is interested in purchasing/ buying muzzleloaders “regardless of condition” and artifacts, related to my family for an exhibit to be publicly displayed at KRA and other 18th century’s shows. You can read my family history at Beck Flintlocks.
Many rifles are locked away in gun cabinets and deserve to be shown together to the public. During the great depression my ancestors sold many family heirlooms.
My goal is to recover some rifles for a living history display to outline the historical significance of the Longrifle, how it changed and evolved along Westward expansion.
From Lebonon to Indianna the Beck family rifles served in the American Revolution and travelled West along the Oregon Trail.
