    My dad bought this gun at a garage sale a few years back and we've just now decided to look into it. It is very damaged but to me it looks like a lorenz rifle from the civil war. However of all the pictures i've seen I haven't seen one with the finger grip that's on this one. Can anybody help me...

    Looking to find any information on this rifle. I have been researching it on and off for weeks and really can’t find any accurate information on it other than the R.B. Stamp comes from a known maker. The gun is broken and does not shoot but I would like to know more about it before I hang it up...

    Hi all, New to this forum, saw a similar post and figured this would be a good place to ask. I was recently cleaning out my grandmother's closet (she passed years ago) and found these. I'd like to keep one and sell the other, but I have no idea their value or anything. Any help would be much...

    Hello folks - this gun has been passed down in the family and I would like to start identifying what it is and possibly the origins. Can you help? I thought it might be a 1817 Common Rifle but it does not have the patch box on the stock. Do you have a wag on the value?

    On vacation next week and since I lack the ability to go on a long vacation this week I'm planning on seeing parts of the great state of Missouri I have missed in the past. Apparently they have a museum and all that but I was wondering if anyone here as been there before.
  9. Technical Questions & Information
    I have, what is believed to be, a civil war musket/rifle, bayonet with sheath and US buckle for the sheath. There are markings on the rifle but are faint and I can make out "851." There are some other markings on the rings as well. I would like to know a possible manufacturer and more...

    I have a NMA with a cut-off barrel. It is serial numbered 140457 with all the Union acceptance proof marks. There's an additional serial number of "500" stamped on the bottom of the handle strap. The pistol looks to be used as a "fencing tool" during its' lifetime :) Surprisingly, the screws...
  11. Technical Questions & Information
    Don't know what happened to my original thread, but here I go again: This appears to be, from earlier lost replies, a Lefaucheux/Colt. Question now is: is this an original barrel or a replacement?
