So I bought this old percussion gun. Anyone have any experience removing the breech from the back of a BW Amsden barrel? Looks not me like it’s definitely an add on.
thanks....

Been a long time since seeing the name AMSDEN.

AMSDEN, B. W.— Lake Ave. & Hodgman Sts., Saratoga Springs,

N. Y., about 1860-1880. Percussion target rifles, double rifles, and
rifle-shotgun combinations; shaded front sight of pig bristle;
silver eagle cheek-rest inlays.

AMSDEN, J.— Saratoga Springs, N. Y., 1870-73. Maker of a double,
side-by-side, combination percussion rifle-shotgun. Engraved locks
and dolphin type hammers. Ornate patch box. Iron furniture.

(Related to Amsden, B. W.?)

Let me look into what I have on his breeching methods.
