This has been a wall hanger in the family since I can remember. It has been "sporterized" and maybe bored to a shotgun as cannot see any signs of rifling, but just some light rust with no deep pitting. The barrel is 32" to the bottom of the bore and it seems to be clear all the way. The forearm was cut down and reshaped, 1 band remaining, otherwise stock is in great shape. Rear sight is missing (dovetail and small hole in front of dovetail), front sight is a brazed on bead and a groove was filed in the band to act as a rear sight. The lock and trigger assy are in nice shape and none of the screws have been buggered up. It seems like they would work fine as is, have not pulled them out to have a look. The barrel is also free of rust/pits outside The lock plate is pretty clean, in front of hammer is "U S" with an eagle image in between the letters.. Below is "Providence Tool Co" "Providence R. I." Behind the hammer is numbers/year, 1865. I need to clean it up before I post a picture. Maybe get a bore light and a caliper to check bore + dia. Any thoughts on this? It seems to be made into a fowler.
