I’ve had this gun in my collection for about 10 years or so and never really knew much about it. My Aunt passed it on to me with little to no information on it. It belonged to my uncle who was an engineer for DuPont and was heavily involved in black powder firearms But he passed away suddenly and left no records about his firearm collections. Some he made and some he bought, which of those categories this falls into I have no idea. I can find no markings on the gun anywhere including proof marks on the barrel. I believe the stock is Tiger Maple. The rifled barrel is 48” long and .42 caliber. I’ve shot it a few times but it periodically will get stuck where the sear will not let the hammer fall. I adjust it and it works well and then for no reason it locks open. if someone has any knowledge on its origin, style etc. It would be greatly appreciated and while it would be nice to know what it’s worth that information is secondary as I have no interest in selling.
