Re: Help! Old Muzzleloader Rifle I.D with detailed Pics!
I'd say your pretty close Jack but the stock has got me a bit off kilter. Since it dont go up the barrel any futher than half, I have to say mabbe Ohio. There was a rifle builder up there around that time who made stocks like those. The brass works ar on par with other BP's that I have seen also. If this is one of his rifles it will book for 1200 if not more. Charles W Howell in Martinsferry Ohio. The only thing is I dont knoe if this is one of his or not. It looks similar to his design. I am not shure what to look for to tell you how to find out if this is one of his or not to be honest. There may be a stamp under the brass on the buttplate. Could even be on the barrel under the wood or close to the hammer.
