Re: Old gun, loaded in the front. (sorry for the english, i am danish)
I believe your Tower flintlock is a reproduction; based on your pics and description.
No proof or acceptance marks.
EIG on the barrel was the importer.
The absence of a serial # means that it was imported into this country prior to the Gun Control Act of 1968 (these guns were just old timey Davy Crocket things; why bother).
After 1968 the hammer came down.
The "black powder only" thing was added later; after it was found out that too many citizens were eliminating essential parts of their anatomy by stuffing them with "smokeless".
EIG iported these; and others;
The Internet God won't tell me who EIG was...
