I was looking over the auction sites today and came across this one that looked interesting.

Not saying he made it, but this is something you would see from John Derr. The style is similar.

Hate to bust somene's bubble but that is no more than a heavy offhand rifle. As far from being a bench gun as they come.

Might just be a rifle built from old parts, but it is in nice shape and probably worth the $1200 or so spent on it. If I didn't have bills to pay I probably would have taken a chance on it.
