C1850-60 iron frame rifle attributed to G.P.Foster. 31" octagon barrel of medium weight with muzzle turned round. About .40 caliber bore. Sights, ramrod, and one ramrod pipe apparently missing, unknown if rifle was made with a fore stock. Metal parts are a light gray with overall scattered pitting. Hammer spur is broken off. Buttstock is good, with a slightly dry appearance, lightly cleaned, with a crack in a knot on the left side, a small crack on right side by triggerguard, and a small sliver on left side by triggerguard. Hammer cocks, but trigger doesn't set, front trigger release hammer if pulled back far enough. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
