    Description

    Recently made Percussion Full Stock Pennsylvania Style Rifle. 41 3/16" .48 caliber full octagonal rifled barrel signed H. M. Gilmore when viewed from the right with script initials L. T. S. when viewed from the left. Two screw barrel tang, lock marked "T Ketland & Co." Made without ramrod pipes, notched rear sight with german silver blade front sight, barrel secured by three keys, functioning set triggers. The 20th century stock is rather unorthodox with no patchbox, side plate or even lock bolt washer. The lock and barrel both appear to be old and both with dark patina. Light wear overall. There is a cut out for an entry pipe but no pipe present, rear lock screw is missing. The "Gilmore" marking is recent, while the "LTS" appears to be much earlier.
