Andreas Albrecht 

Andreas Albrecht was an influential gun-builder in the Christian Springs area. He was born in 1718, migrated to America in 1750 where he settled in Bethlehem Pa. in 1759 he moved to Christian Springs where he lived and built guns until 1766. in 1771 he moved to Litiz Pa as a gunsmith until his death in 1802. These 2 rifles shown below are both examples that show his style work. the Moravian guns were heavier built with more Germanic structure then the usual golden age rifles that would come later.
