The octagon barrel is stamped "J.M. CASWELL / LANSINGBURGH" on the too flat, towards the breech. Lansingburgh is now Troy, New York. The unsigned percussion lock has a few sprigs of engraving. The brass furniture includes a 4 piece unengraved patchbox with 6 piercings. There is a small rectangular silver wrist escutcheon. The stock is of partially figured maple and has a checkered wrist. Wooden ramrod is a replacement. CONDITION: Barrel retains a brown patina. Lock retains a matching patina with center of plate cleaned slightly. Brass retains a pleasing dark mustard patina. Stock shows scattered age-cracks, wear and marks from use. There is some loss above back of lockplate and above front lockplate tang due to percussion burnout. 1 chip replaced at toe and 1 barrel key escutcheon is absent. An attractive signed rifle with nice form and a very attractive large patchbox. DMG
