This gun has done it all. Was in the civil war, and came home where farmer John made a smooth bore out of it. Possibly the stock was destroyed in battle, and the owner hand hewed a home made stock, and used metal bands to hold the whole thing together!Later looked like someone use bondo to fill in around the trigger guard, lock, and top tang,a heavy coat of varnish or shellac, then it was painted by brush including the dust a black color. I think that this should get an award for Frankenstein Joslyn of the Year!!not safe to shoot, but good for parts, lock, hammer, and breech block, and lock has strong 1864 markings.Hang it on the wall as the world's most ugly gun or give it to your mother in law!We don’t have a store, and sell on the internet only. We don’t have a web site. OUR DESCRIPTIONS ARE ACCURATE. THREE DAY INSPECTION ON ALL PURCHASES.
