Hello all. The name is Jaxson from St. Johns, Newfoundland. I'm new to the whole 'old firearms' thing. Recently, I found this little gem at an antique shop and I've been having trouble trying to identify it. Here is what I know about it at this time. Markings include a number on the side of the rifle near the cocking handle(?). The marking is 859 (Photo Below). The next markings are on the barrel. They might be a makers marking or something. I'm not sure. Above that, there is the word 'London'. I know that is a percussion cap, not a flintlock system. Conversions seem pretty common from what I have seen, so it could be converted. The barrel length from beginning to end is 40 inches. Overall length is 55 inches maybe. I'm checking with a small ruler. Its all I have at this time. The wood extends from the stock to about 10 inches down the barrel. Somebody said that it may be a percussion shotgun too. Could be this instead of a musket. if there are any questions, feel free to ask them. I will attach what photos I have to the post. If you guys want any more, feel free to ask for them.
