I forgot to mention that this rifle is a 45 caliber.

Em, I like this one even more than the cap lock!

If you really want sticker shock, look at David Price swivel breech rifles. Holy moly!

Em,

That looks a bit like a Leonard Day swivel breech. Or I could be mis-remembering.

I don't know....I was thinking more like a H&A or maybe Numrich. I think the L. Day guns were better fit/finished, also signed.

I know Leonard Day and his son built the guns; I don't know if Leonard is still working or even alive at this time. High quality guns indeed!
