Yep, the Ferguson is an interesting rifle for it's time. The inventor was British army Major Patrick Ferguson.

BTW:

Major Ferguson was commander of Loyalist forces an area that included what is now western South Carolina. Ferguson threatened to attack Patriot settlements west of the mountains, this incensed Patriot militia troops. At the battle of King's Mountain Major Ferguson was killed. Patriot militia lined up and whizzed on his body.
