Original U.S. Percussion Take Down Hunting Rifle with Patch Box marked A.B. Culver Paw Paw Mich.
Original Item: Only One Available. We just received this very interesting take down rifle, along with about 200 other guns, from a collection that sat in an attic for close to 100 years. This is a very impressive re-blued U.S. Percussion "take down" sporting Rifle with a heavy octagonal barrel. The top is marked to the rear of the "buckhorn" rear sight:
It comes with patch box and no wood under the barrel whatsoever, as the barrel takes down (unscrews) for easy storage and transportation. The weapon measures 45" overall once assembled. There also are currently 7 original bullets currently stored in the patch box.
Very interesting, dating to the mid 19th century and ready to display!
