Tim,

Very neat little rifle.  Is the set trigger pushed forward?

Tim, Thanks for posting  pictures of this nice rifle.  Nice inlays and finish.  I like the color. I bet she's pretty in the sunshine.  If you have another, by all means, post it!  This forum is about the only place I get to see antique rifles.

Scott,...yes

Lew,...from the nice old lady.....just kidding.  I purchased this rifle in my local area from a gentleman who had family history that goes back a long time in Ohio.

Tim,...so who was H.F. Hamilton?

Roger,...thank you.
