Seller's Description

Josh Golcher Lock on Black powder long rifle

Josh or Joseph Golcher lock with S.Stout on Barrel, S. Stout may have been the barrel maker or the guy who just built the gun. See photo's please! No Ram Rod!!!!! I believe to be 38 Caliber rifled barrel as seen in photo's This long gun measures a full 55 inches. I have not attempted in anyway to clean this weapon. The front site is missing as noted in the photo and shows a brass plate with a shallow hole as if it was a small round bead site. The rear blade with grove site is still intact. I strongly believe this gun could again be shoot able with proper restoration. The stock is 99 percent intact. the brass but piece is still in very good condition and should polish up nicely. The double set trigger works perfectly and is set to a hair pull. Nipple still intact as well as hammer. This stock is missing a small pieces between the hammer and tang also shown in photo. also a small piece appears missing just ahead of the trigger side plate but may be the way the gun stock was fitted. I can not find any major cracks in the stock or wooden forearm pieces. the octagon barrel is stamped S. Stout on the top flat area about 8 inches in front of the nipple. There are no markings I can not find that would indicated the year or caliber. perhaps with some cleaning they may appear. I used a pair of calipers to get a ballpark reading of the grove dia. about .398 The breech to end of barrel measures 40 inches. with the overall length measuring 55 inches. This is the longest black powder rifle I have ever owned. I do have a few more relict's coming up in future auctions so check back now and then. I do not claim to be an expert on these old guns and your input is welcomed! a few pins that hold the stock to the barrel are missing but most are in place. Good luck bidders. any questions please call me at 714-296-0706 or email me. Thanks for looking! Mike

Questions for Users
(Public)   
    Q:  Hello, No question, just wanted to clear some things up if you don't mind. The name on the lock is "Joseph Golcher", not "Josh Golchek". Golcher is who made the lock on this rifle. His locks were very popular on rifles in the 19th century. The name "S. Stout" is likely the maker as that is where most builder sign or stamp the guns they build. I'm not trying to offend or sound like a "know it all", just thought you might like to clear it up for potential buyers. Good luck on your auction. Tommy Bruce 09/19/2010
        A:  Thank You for your input and yes I did make a typo as the photo shows the correct spelling. I do not know but will try and change the spelling mistake. I'm wondering on the lock if the Josh is just a short hand of his full name. Also I want to mention there is no ram rod included as it is long gone. Thanks again for your help. Mike 09/19/2010
