Re: Antique 1841 competition 50 cal
Well itis all custome. It is a shooters custome also, What I mean by that is hat is was made for the person not mass produced. It was probly put together about the same time the barrell was manufactured also since they like to us new matrials. The biggest give away on this rifle is the butt plate. THere was some that were made with butt plates like that but they were exreamly rare and not used very often becouse of the cumbersome nature. Look the rifle over closely and see if there is some initials or a company name on it some where. It is most likely gonna be on the butt plate since it is brass.
Another thing to take not is that these were not popular patforms for hunters or riders. THis gun is for a marksman and also for the wealthy. Your average Joe didt buy this type of rifle.
How did you come across this one anyway?
