This is a
wonderful gun by a great maker that has been restored to
it's original condition by Bruce LePage. He converted it
back to flint, polished the lock inside and out and
recut the engraving. The touch hole has been lined with what
looks like platinum which would be appropriate but it
might be stainless. The 32" long barrel has been honed
smooth to a mirror finish inside and the outside has
been refinished to bring out the damascus pattern. The
wood has been cleaned and refinished without any sanding
so it still shows the minor handling dents natural to
it's age. The checkering does not appear to have been
re-cut. The wood is very sound with only one small check
on the right forend behind the nosecap. The nosecap is
formed iron and held in place with a screw. The ramrod
is original with both tips intact. The lower tip has a
threaded cap that covers a wad puller and the front tip
is damascus to match the rest of the barrel.
Overall an exceptionally nice gun for any collection or
to take to the range. Very light and well balanced. The
pictures will tell you more.
