Chas OsBorne; This rifle uses a percussion cap, actually what they call a Winged Musket Cap. Everyone needs at least 1 conversation piece. This is mine.
To the best of my knowledge, it is all original. I have not had it appraised. It is a huge rifle. The OAL is about 62". It is a 1" smooth bore with a fairly thin wall barrel. Weighs about 11#. The individual that I got it from said that there was a mono pod with it at one time but he didn't know what happened to it
