    Does anyone know of a maker named Bingham? A friend has a flintlock, .50 caliber, with this name signed on the barrel. From what he has told me it is a custom built rifle, not an original. The Bingham name doesn't soung familiar to me, so I'll ask all of you! I'm still waiting for him to send me a picture of the rifle.

    Thanks,
    John

    The rifle seems to be a custom built piece. Definitely modern construction, and very nicely done.
