This was originally a full stock Kentucky rifle that has had the wood shortened. Barrel appears to be the original length, although it also appears to be a smoothbore. Gun retains an even age patina overall with some rust and pitting. Lock has some light scroll engraving and is marked Warrented, although it's hard to read. Has C.H. on top of the barrel for Conrad Horn (1820-1880) who was a well known Pennsylvania rifle maker from Hazelton, PA. Brass sideplate is typical for Conrad Horn rifles. Conrad Horn is well known for his Kentucky rifles. Brass mounted with a very pretty but plain patchbox. Pewter nose cap. Good working order. Has two initials in script engraved on the top barrel flat. Missing one of the ram rod ferrules. Lock is a bit loose in the gun. Some cracks in the wood around the lock. 38 inch octagon barrel. Bore is most likely rusty. A very attractive gun that could be easily restored, although it would appear to have had the pewter nose cap on it for a very long time. Original sights on the barrel. Shoulders nicely. An honest gun. May have originally been a flint gun with a different lock in it, as it has two lock screws, however it's been in this configuration for a very long time.
