Tell us a little about this rifle; caliber, manufacturer, personal history with the arm, you know...general interest stuff.

Hope I didn't put it in the wrong place.

I built it.

Old LH Dixie Gun works small action.

21" long 54 caliber Colerain, 15/16 Octagonal, round rifled, 56 twist.

Davis double set trigger.

The trigger guard was custom made by me, so I could keep my gloves on.

Black walnut stock from an old shed timber here in NC off the farm.

Rear peep, front blade.

Antler bone on the end cap and ramrod channel.

Kind of inspired by the Austrian Stutz rifles. Need to fab a patch box for it.

Right now, I'm holding 3" groups at 50 yards, maybe because I'm using FFFg in the pan, because I thought I had FFFFg, but I was mistaken. Or I'm just a shaky old dude.

Not that 3" is bad. It will still knock over your average Black Forest boar....
