The rifle being discussed here is a beautiful, slender rifle with a 47 inch octagon to round barrel for buck and ball. There is no patch box installed on this rifle but it has a lot of incised carving around the lock plates, fore arm and on the cheek side of the butt. It exhibits a beautiful curly maple stock and original flint lock. It has initials on the top flat of the barrel but I can not identify the maker. If anyone can identify the marking, please contact me.
