This muzzleloader has been featured in books and magazines since it's contemporary discovery in the 1900s. From Shumway to Gusler, writers and historians have noted this flintlock smoothbore's interesting design elements as a step away from the norm for late 18th century muzzleloader building. While the design changes aren't totally foreign to longrifle architecture, they are still a bit "peculiar". Watch the video today to learn more about this interesting slice of muzzleloading history.
