SALE PENDING This is an interesting take on an OHIO style rifle. It is half stocked in a nicely figured Maple. Minimal handling marks. Brass, silver and stainless steel fittings. Missing an inlay on underside where ramrod enters stock. Mostly out of sight. The 27" barrel is Octagon to round with wedding band. Bluing very good, with some minor rust around breech. Bore is excellent. Missing front sight. The lock is an antique back action style. Has an engraved piece of brass ahead of bolster. Lock works as it should. It has double set triggers which need a proper size Alan Wrench to adjust. They work, but are very touchy now and I don't want to mess up screw with pliers. Top of barrel engraved with an unpronounceable symbol, making me think the builder was The Artist Formerly Known as Prince! LOL. Asking $550 shipped.

It did come out of a Texas auction house. A quality barrel, I assume?
Well they always would shoot. And they have a cult following down here. He was from the old school that was making stuff before commercial items were available.
C. P. Russell utilized him and his rifles in his epic "Firearms, Traps, and Tools of the Mountain Men"

Sweet! when I first started in muzzleloading in early 70s, the shop I frequented had lots of custom built rifles with barrels made by the builder or someone like Judge Resley. Always beyond the means of a teenager.
