The fully octagonal barrel is inscribed "A M Y" for Andrew M Young surrounded by rocker panel and engraved decorations. The flat lock plate features sprigs of engraving at the tail. Brass furniture includes a pierced four piece patchbox inscribed on the lid "Heavy tax / no money / hard times / 1844" along with foliate scrolls. There is an inlaid brass wear plate on the cheekpiece and an ovoid shaped escutcheon around the single lock retaining screw. There are a total of eleven plain unengraved silver inlays including an oval wrist escutcheon and a half moon above the cheekpiece. The rifle has double set triggers and a full length highly figured maple stock. Complete with replaced wooden ramrod. Condition: Barrel retains a brown patina overall. Barrel has been professional stretched about twelve inches. Lock is a replacement and shows an applied brown finish and has been reconverted. Brass is polished and shows a few scattered marks from use. Stock shows much original finish and has a few small pieces replaced including a piece below the lock, one behind the barrel tang and a sliver along the barrel on the right side. About twelve inches of the stock have been professionally restored. A very attractive rifle with a important and historically significant inscription.
