This old muzzleloader is in 45 caliber, and very heavy. The barrel is marked: S. Settle Greensburg, KY.
The side plate is engraved with a game scene, it looks to be a couple of turkeys by a stream. Looks like it says: 1082 Gelcher (or Golcher). The hammer is also scroll engraved. Also has double set triggers.
The barrel is 42" long, and the overall length is 58". The barrel is 1" in diameter. Hand carved ramrod. The stock has the usuall scratches, but no cracks or splits. Hammer spring is good, and the triggers function correctly also.
A nice old gun from the 1800's.
