    Its barrel has six sides with clean old petina and marcked "C C" behind the sight and a few pits near the nipple -- It is 39 9/16" long by .900 diameter face to face -- The bore has six sides and appears to be about .35", and a patch comes out clean and smoothly -- The ramrod looks origional and is 39" long with a brass tip and is attached with 3 brass fittings to the stock --The tiger striped stock has no dings and is full length attached with 3 pins under the barrel -- It has nice wood and the finish appears to be origional --It has a brass tip ,and butplate deely curved to fit the shoulder -- The trigerguard is brass with two finger "ears" -- The lockplate is 4.75" long and minimal engraving -- Triger is double set. -- It would be interesting to know who made this and about what time period ? -- Value? -- Thanks for any information --DirkVN

    The architecture and brass trigger guard design indicate Ohio origin. The triggers appear to be early percussion period with the turned front trigger, and the thin angled rear trigger which indicates probably a single lever set trigger. Later designs were double lever. As far as the CC makers stamp, I dont know who that might be at this time.
