    I'm working on the ID of a oldie that I've had for a few years, having no luck! I though that maybe the style of work might lead me in a direction. The gun has silver inlay's that are nailed in place. I know I have seen this done before but can't remember when or where. Can anyone tell me when this way of attaching inlays was used, a area of the country or hopefully any makers?

    Are there any other markings on the barrel or the lock?

    Flintlock or percussion?

    I was kinda hoping someone might have seen the kind of silver nailing around the edge on the inlays

    Information I can offer is as follows
    It has no markings of any kind anywhere on the gun
    It is American made likely North Eastern
    Made 1840 ish
    It is a sxs percussion PA style smooth bore rifle Not a shotgun.
