The full-length maple stock rated very good and has lots of lovely tiger-striped pattern figure. There are a few small cracks at the butt, the toe appears to be separating but this should be an easy fix for the right wood man. The stock is equipped with brass furniture which has a light ochre patina and is accented with silver inlays and foliate scroll edging and period style carvings. The right side of the butt holds a keyhole patchbox with silver head and oval in center. There are additional silver ovals on the top of the cheek rest and wrist, all the silver has a mild tarnish. The lock is equipped with dual set triggers and functions correctly. Rifle is equipped with a simple blade front sight and semi-buckhorn rear. Included is what is likely the original wood ramrod which has a burnished striped pattern. A lovely example with quality parts and fitting that would make an ideal shooter or reenactment arm.
