The rifle is "MGM" marked and photo documented as to having been used by Clarke Gable in the motion picture "Across the Wide Missouri" (1959) starring Clarke Gable, Ricardo Montalb√°n and James Whitmore, and narrated by the famous musical star Howard Keel. The movie deals with the mountain men and fur trading industry of the 1830's. The rifle is not only photo identified in Clarke Gable's hands, but the barrel is also stamped "MGM" with inventory number "CBR2". The rifle is a full octagon barrel half stock plains rifle with double triggers and a percussion sideplate stamped "AW SPIES", a well known retailer in the first half of the 19th century . The set trigger and release are fully functional. A great Clarke Gable movie.
