Please click the image for a larger version
percussion fullstock muzzleloading rifle. 36-1/4" octagon barrel. About .36 caliber bore. Golcher marked trade lock. Marked on barrel where it is mostly hidden "STANDARD STEEL W.S.BROWN". All iron mounted with an attractive medium patina and minimal worn pitting overall. Stock is nicely made with a lovely scalloped cheekrest and matching scalloped carbine at forearm tip. Wood is evenly worn with minimal scattered marks from handling, small cracks on each side by rear stock pin and a small crack by the upper ramrod pipe. Nipple appears to be replaced. Nice original sights, rear sight is missing its elevator, but looks like one from a common rocky mountain rear sight could be used. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
