Our Assessment: This is a cool little muzzle loading .45, with the simple under hammer design. We believe this is a reproduction which likely means that the steel is of good quality and will make this a very fun little shooter. The condition of the bore, nipple and other components indicate that this rifle may never have been fired. This will make a good brush gun for black powder season this year.
