As it turns out, this one has the USA Douglas barrel and is stamped USA. I was going to replace the barrel since the owner says its rough, but with it being a Douglas, I'll send it off to Hoyt and let him ream it out and install a .54cal 1:72 twist liner instead!

Curly maple stock ( stock wasnt finished at all) Its the super early one with the hexagon ramrod thimbles. Hell, I may build it up and keep it and then just sell my 58! headslap

That is some pretty nice wood!
Will you increase the contrast and make it more red-brown?

Curly maple stock... I'd definitely hang onto that one if I were you FG.  Turn it onto one of your masterful collectibles.  Wink

this maple looks friggin nuts! its nothing but curl.

The bore doesnt look that bad, i see surface rust but when i get some time i will clean it and take a better look.

I dunno! Its so tempting to keep her and restore it back to original caliber.
