    1. Barrel maker?
    2. Lock maker?
    3. Trigger maker?
    4. Condition of bore, any pitting?
    5. Custom builder?

    Thanks

    The bore is great. I would like to be able to give all that info. But I don’t know the parts used for a fact. And the old guy that had it built. 35 years ago. Wasn’t sure of it. I did ask all the same questions. I would say being early 80s LR lock and trigger douglas or green river rifle works barrel, green mountain. I can pull lock and check it tonight thanks Rick

    Right. I figure. It would be a good benching gun for someone. OR. At the damn good price of 695$. Someone would send to Rayle. Or Hoyt. Or other and rebore to 54, 58. Even 62. And really knock shite down. Oh and if you need a horse or mule I can supply ya one of them also

    Update info as ask by fishDfly. Pulled lock and barrel. Barrel is a marked Douglas barrel. Lock not marked. Newest guess is a Dixie gun works lock. Maker is marked 2 spots. E.Earnhart.

    Oldwolf. Looking down the barrel and comparing to a known barrel of 1/56. I would call it. 1/48. Douglas. Course I’m prolly shooting myself in the foot for that guess Question. Knowing it is Douglas. What did they offer?

    The breech is not a breech plug. It is a a patent breech. Called a snail breech.
