This one has a 40" long by 7/8" barrel in .45 caliber. The wood and mounts have been slightly "aged". The lock is by L&R. The guard is hand forged iron. Maple stock with no buttplate or entry thimble. This one has the typical lock bolts with no sideplate. Just a good basic rifle that would have been right at home on a backwoods farm or out on the frontier.

Weight is 8 lbs. Pull is 13".
