Rifle meas. approx. 48.00 inches long. The heavy half octagon/half round barrel meas. approx. 31.50 inches long and is .40 caliber in size.

There is no front sight. Only an empty mortise cut into the muzzle. The rear sight is present and is of notched iron.

Left side of the butt does not have a raised cheek rest. Plain heavy buttplate is shaped to fit securely into the shooters shoulder. Patchbox is circular with pointed decoration.

Triggerguard is decorative with elongated ends and finger rests. Barrel is anchored to the stock by a wedge pin that has an oval escutcheon on each side. Ramrod appears to be made of ebony wood with a silver tip on each end. Lower end unscrews to expose an attached ball puller.  [ad]
