Hello, not sure what we have here. Hoping someone can shed some light. Barrel is stamped W M Large. Bore is bright and shiny, looks very fast twist. Not sure on the caliber, going to slug it later. No other markings, except for 3 little marks on the bottom of the barrel. Stock is very thick and squared off, not slender or refined. 2 pins instead of lugs, but is otherwise Hawken style. Very heavy barrel and gun. Probably around 13 #'s. The furniture is iron and also thick and unrefined. Not sure if it was from a kit. I'm thinking early 70's. No JJJJ markings on the barrel like Bill Large's later ones... That is why I think early...
