OLD MUZZLELOADER
« on: October 31, 2012, 12:36:15 PM »
this old girl has been in are family for over 5 generations--my grandfather brought it over from geramany.
cant really find any i.d. numbers on it....it was a rifle at on time then someone bored it out to use as a shotgun--my dad inserted a .36 cal. liner in it..after he saw a small puff of smoke leaking throu the damascus barrel..after looking throu my old blakpowder mag--it may have been a smoothbore from the start ?  any ideas who made it ??????????

If it was a smooth bore from the start, then it would be classified as a smooth rifle, since it does have front and rear sights. Are there any stamps/markings on it anywhere? Inside or outside lock, barrel, etc.?  Pretty hard to establish the maker without the markings as there were sooooo many of them.
