Oh well! I was hoping for some sort of little local history. Looks like these things are all over the place.
Well, they were at one time very common. But today finding one in very good condition is getting harder and harder to find. ( and the value is going up all the time $$$$ )
The "rolling block" rifle has a long and interesting history. These rifles have one of the lowest failure rates of any rifle made and considering how many millions have been made , that is quite the achievement.
My sugestion to you is give that rifle a light coat of oil and hang it on a wall.
When your buddies come over you can sit there and tell stories about some long lost relative taking the rifle from some solder at the foot of the pyramids.:D:D
