This historic and significant Tennessee rifle is in exceptionally fine condition. Overall Length 62 inches. Barrel Length 46 inches. LOP 13 inches. Caliber .38.

Any chance of posting pictures through this site instead of using Photobucket? Would enjoy seeing it.

Still private....
Contrary to emails from them, it seems Photobucket is still trying to completely destroy itself!

I lost some pictures on that didn't get transferred on my last computer buy. Photobucket has all the ones I lost. When I need one, I pull it up on photobucket, hit save picture as and transfer it to a file on my new computer.  The photobucket watermark you see when you post directly from photobucket isn't on the pictures I transfer to my computer.
