That's a very nice piece, lots to admire, great pictures..!!
Love the color, be nice to know more about it,
Barrel finish is really great, has a warm feel to it
only flintlocks remain interesting..

Agreed :)
Nothing beats the feel of a handmade southern iron mounted flintlock on a cold frosty morning

It's a very nice rifle. I wish he would have carried out the finial on the buttplate though!

Say, any of you boys smithies? Or, if not smithies per se, were you otherwise trained in the metallurgic arts before straitened circumstances forced you into a life of aimless wanderin'?

Maybe the buttplate was used after a Indian used the finial for a ornament  ;)
