Product Description

It is beautifully signed in script, “J * M * Anderson.”  The only other one like it that I’ve found is pictured in the big patchbox book. I believe that it could be the later James Anderson (died 1831) who worked in Virginia, based on my research.  On the other hand, this rifle clearly has many features associated with Lancaster, PA. Gorgeous running deer on the cheek piece, nice escutcheons for the barrel keys, engraved patchbox and toe plate, checkered wrist.  Good condition, overall. However, there is some wood replaced and reshaped around the lock. Also, there are engraved initials in front of the rear sight and other nice design work on the barrel. Finally, I doubt this is the original lock in the rifle, but it sure looks nice. In fact, this rifle could have been built with a percussion lock originally, especially with the single screw. Thanks. John
