  1. Black Powder Shooting / Muzzleloaders / Handguns
    This has been in the family as long as I can remember and was displayed with a Civil War Calvary sword so I’m guessing that it’s mid-1800s, but can anyone identify the maker that belongs to this mark?
  2. Black Powder Shooting / Muzzleloaders / Handguns
    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...

    I recently purchased this muzzleloader from a antique store for next to nothing. The guy I purchased it from said it is some sort of trade rifle. It has a octagonal to round barrel and it looks like there might be a crown above N. Ashmore. There is a aluminum band stamped with H and the letters...

    Hi All: My dad recently passed and left me 2 muskets (this is the 2nd one). Does anyone know how common these are (assuming the 859 meant 1859); and does this look original?

    Here i have a rifle (or whats left of it). Seems quite old,has a thick black patina over it. It shares some visual similarities with the enfield but it doesn't seem to be one. I'm mostly interested in it as a wallhanger for its relic/antique condition. Do you think its genuine or could be one of...

    Yesterday I went into an antique shop near my house and bought an ELG black powder percussion rifle for $100. I did some research and found that it was made between 1810 and 1853 making it 163 to 206 years old. I know it's Belgian but I'm not sure of the caliber or what it's really worth. The...
