The question is , do I have a replica?the receiver looks to be of stamped steel. But other parts still have machine marks on them. Below are...

    I saw a rifle up for auction that was described as having "saw tooth style rifling". The rifle was made in the late 1700's or early 1800's and the barrel was made by Nicholas LeClerc.
