This is a Thompson Center .50 Caliber Black Powder Ball and Cap Rifle with the Double Set Trigger. Earlier production (S/N 91xxx) and in perfect condition. This is being listed on behalf of my wife's Widow friend. Wood and metal are all perfect and it was fired less then 5 times, though it did take down a deer. Original owners widow has had it since the early 70's and it has just hung above the fireplace all these years.
