    I found a Blackpowder Rifle from the 1850s I was told, and the only thing I could find on it was bates. Also I was told it was american made from the east. Does anyone know if this is the gun maker or just the maker of the part. I googled the name but found nothing on it.

    First, pics of the markings and rifle will help a ton. We have several members here who are well versed on bp guns old and new. If you post some pics, I'm confident someone will be able to help you.

    Second, how about stopping by the Introductions section and letting the forum members know a bit about you. That is what most new members politely do.

    Third, welcome to the forum.
