110704-2 Burson Plains Rifle

Comments:

There were several gunmakers in the Burson family, but this one appears to have been made by H. J. Burson, who worked in Ashland, Oregon.  I believe I have fondled this rifle in person a few years back. A friend has a collection of Burson rifles, mostly made by Joshua Seth Burson, who worked in several locations in Indiana and also in Wisconsin.
==================================================================   
Good examples of Burson's work with nice signatures and some artistic details. Photography would be better if we had "standard" half-shots of front and back, and no angles shots that distort details. But still worth moving on to library. Can we request the owner shoot a couple more photos, and provide the statndard front and rear "half-shot" views from butt plate up to about 8 inches past the lock plate?
