J.Henry Flintlock Trade Rifle .58 caliber circa 1800 - 1820's
Full maple stock and a octagonal barrel.
This rifle still gets shot and hunted with occasionally...
In fact I got my last elk with it.

This also still gets shot a bit.

Here is a Henry Leman Percussion Trade Rifle .50 caliber circa late 1830's - 1850's
If you look close you will see that the lock was converted from flint to percussion....
I think that this was done as the rifle was being made...not that the rifle started as a flint lock and converted later.

Leman often artificially striped his stocks...which is the case with this rifle.
Single trigger and brass furniture.
This Leman does get shot with at times.

A flintlock Fowler by G. Laloux.
Laloux was a Belgian maker and his company made guns from 1834 - 1920.
This one is in 20 gauge , still goes hunting and has gotten me grouse.

I'd sort of like to have a flintlock just in case percussion caps were no longer available.
Same in a pistol, but the funds just aren't there. SOOOO all I can do is drool, and save up some more
#10 and 11 caps to fit my old CVA plains rifle in 45cal and my BP revolver a Remington 1858 replica in 36cal.
Can't shoot either one now it's fire season here in S Oregon and the grass is tinder dry. :(:eek:
Good seeing you are still active Andy, did you ever make it down to the Grants Pass BP shoot?
