Really beautiful wood on this rifle, and all the iron hardware is hand forged. Rifle is used with a mirror bright Douglas 40" barrel. Lop is 14.5", weight is close to 8lbs. Looks like a ramrod hole small patched area on the bottom. Clearing out a couple rifles to finance other builds. 850.00 plus shipping

Thats sure a sweet looking rifle, and the Douglas barrel is likely a tack driver.

Thx for the quick response. I’m interested in a .40 flinter and was hoping either a lock by the same maker or one from L&R could be had.
thx again

I think this lock is a CVA. I would put an L&R replacement lock on it, or convert it to a flinter

That lock looks like a Maslin. They were made in Spain, and sold by Dixie back in the day. Before CVA.

Love it! Wish I had the extra change for it. (Seriously, just used three years of small change to buy a Pedersoli pistol, lol)
