Here is a nice signed percussion rifle from Hampshire County, West Virginia. Signed “J W R” for John W Rhinehart. His typical acorn finial patchbox with spring friction lid and wonderful engraving. There are a couple minor wood restorations in the usual places. Barrel is 38 inches with a .45 cal rifled bore.
This example is above average for John’s work in that it has silver inlays on the forestock, a silver ring cheekpiece inlay, and a capbox under the cheekpiece.
