    That is indeed a beautiful rifle. Are both barrels .58 and rifled?

    I have one of Leonard's swivel guns it is a 50 cal. with changeable locks. Both flint and percussion, currently it is set up with the flint lock, it is a shooter with round ball. I believe you will be very pleased with the rifle.

    Either the lock is on the wrong side, or you have to fire this gun with the hammer facing the floor.....something is wrong here:p:rolleyes:

    Forgot to mention mine is also a left handed rifle, I will take a chance here and guess the person you bought the rifle from is first name of Sheldon.
