PATCHBOX RESTORED. Cal. 46. NSN. Starting with a truly fine antique curly maple halfstock, featuring a horsehead patchbox with unpierced sideplates in the style of A. Schweitzer or D. Redlick, and as sometimes used by S. Allen, this rifle was created. The stock also features a very well-done silver wire inlay around the barrel tang, on the cheekpiece and around the sideplate. The aged replacement barrel with an underrib is unmarked. A lock is also a reproduction that has been altered to fit the original mortice. The entire composition works quite well and the quality of workmanship is good. CONDITION: fine. Barrel and lock with a dark brown patina, artificially aged. The brass sideplate also appears to be new. Stock exhibits fine hand-worn areas. Brass is toned. There is replacement wood at the bottom of the lockplate, which has been well aged. Bore is good. Mechanically good. (01-24658/MGM). ANTIQUE. $1,500-2,500.
