    If I remember correctly there are some wood repairs around the barrel tang so the wood is good right up to the bolster. The stock is probably stretched at the rear band. The front band is a repro. The barrel is lined by Hoyt. There may be some Rich Cross parts in the lock. All my restorations are skirmish ready when I sell them. This will serve anyone well as a skirmish gun.

    Have you fired it any? What size projectiles does it need? I imagine that rear sight gives you a good range of adjustment for 50 and 100 yards.

    Also, where are you located?

    Thanks. Sean
