Possibly southern percussion full stock rifle. It's unmarked and it's obviously seen a great deal of use, cleaning and repair during the course of its existence. But the old girl still processes what I think are very graceful, delicate lines and is a joy to hold and point despite her length. Thanks for looking and I would be very interested if anyone out there might have some idea as to where this one might originally hail from.
