I am offering this fine specimen for sale at $1100.00 (shipping not included).
Can you supply any info on this. Thanks. Rick.
I think the topic really needs some description of what the caliber is, if it is a smoothbore or rifled and any other things that can't be figured out by just looking at the pictures.
What is the caliber? Overall length?
Well, described as a, "Fusil des Chase," I would think it to be a smoothbore. Looks like a Centermark manufactured one to me. What gauge? L.o.p.?
Barrel .20 gauge .62 cal. smooth bore,
Overall length 57 1/2"
Pull length 15"
Drop at heel 3 1/2"
Barrel channel length 41"
Barrel channel size 3/4" round or octagon to round"
Ramrod hole size 1 3/8" x 7"
Lock mortise area 1 3/4"
Butt 5 1/4" x 2 1/8"
Like new condition, shot less than 10 times.
It looks identical to the one found on the Pecatonica River Long rifle Supply Co. site. I believe the lock is by R.E. Davis, because it has a circle with an R in it on the backside of the lock.
This was not made by Centermark...the side plate is unique in style and as I said is like the one sold by Pecatonica.
I've sent a PM.
