    Hi everyone. I just found this forum tonite and I feel like I found a home!! I was laid off in December so I am forced to sell several of my old guns, and one given me by a friend is a muzzle loader and the only identifying mark I can find is a bee - like a honey bee - and the initials L G are stamped on each of the bee's wings. Do one of you know the manufacturer with that logo? I have no pictures yet, but I can take some if it will help. Thanks again for a bunch of people who love God and Country, and who are willing to protect it.

    Does it look like this one? (Scroll down for closeup of mark)
    Only the G and L are reversed.

    Hey Chief, The emblem on my gun is exactly the same as the link you provided!! I'll put pictures up as soon as I figure out how to do that. I guess I have a "flint-lock", maybe military style. I obviously know nothing about black powder type weapons!!
    I saw several guns similiar to mine, none exactly like it, but I know who made it, thanks to you.
