John Gunderson Antique Militaria
C1840-60 Southern-style percussion muzzleloading rifle - $450.00

Please click the image for a larger version
C1840-60 Southern-style percussion muzzleloading rifle. Has southern features of long barrel tang, simple iron triggerguard, and simple iron buttplate. 35" 7/8" octagon barrel of about .42 caliber bore. Walnut stock is plain grain and simply made, showing only light use with diagonal crack by lock screw and diagonal crack on right side by barrel key. Mechanically, the action is a little unsure of itself, but if the rear trigger is held back as the hammer is cocked, it usually holds properly and releases when the front trigger is pulled. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
