A friend bought one from an estate for $100. He didn't want it and so I listed it on GB for him. We got close to $400 for it IIRC. I would have just bought it from him but the previous owner had notched the side of the stock near the tang so he could install a peep site on it.

After leaning a little more about them I should have bought the gun and got a piece of walnut and spliced in a filler and dressed and stained it to match. It was a nice rifle that I am not sure had ever been fired. The bore was perfect. As best as I can remember the furniture was steel and not brass.

You have a couple of nice rifles.

I have one in 54 cal and I absolutely love it , Found it at a Black powder gun shop from an estate sale.. It likes .527 rb .018 patch and 90 gr fff. The trigger is different but smooth. I had to repair the cleanout plug on the patent breech but that was no biggie.

Missed buying one when they were introduced; finally bought one about 10 years ago. 50 cal; steel trim. Pet loads are 0.495 ball, Lubed Patch, 90 grains FFG powder. Dead on at 100 yards.

Would love to find a 54.
