Good day all, I am new to this forum as well as the black powder world of firearms. While at a gun show yesterday I acquired this beautiful under Hammer percussion rifle. I have re-searched the makers name and have learned that he was a very highly regarded gunsmith up to and shortly after the Civil War. The wooden box that this rifle fits in appears to be very original. The dove tails are all hand cut and all of the screws are straight blade type. The felt lined form that the rifle sits in is made of wood. I have not yet measured the barrel length or the board diameter, I will do that later today. I am hoping that there are some experts among you all who can help me identify what exactly this is and what it’s estimated value is. The barrel is marked C.V Ramsdell with Bangor Ma. Under his name. Then where the barrel meets the receiver there are two other names there. The name on top is R. H. Emery and the name below it is Hitchcock & Muzzy. I can get some more pictures if you tell me exactly what you need to help in identifying with this. I certainly appreciate all of the help.
