    Yep, in my opinion, that is a nice looking rifle!
    You're not going to make it a wall hanger, are you?

    Talking about wall hangers... I want to get a replica muzzle loader like a Kentucky long rifle and engrave down the length of it,

    That rifle is going on my wall...

    OP, our resident expert on almost everything gun related is C3shooter. He'll probably be around shortly, I suspect he actually looks for threads like this just for the challenge of identifying obscure guns and/or full details of "original vs commemorative" type questions like you asked.

    A good variety of up close, high quality pictures will likely help immensely.

    POSSIBLY a Winchester Centennial '66 Commemerative. Better close up pics, and the MARKINGS would help a lot. If so, made in 1966 (100,478 made), value in EXCELLENT about $550-$600. These were made to mark the 100th anniversary of Winchester. There ARE other companies that made lookalikes.

    Values run about the same as the 66, depending on WHICH commemorative it is- they did a ton of them, only a few have really high values. Except for the plating and higher polish, it is about the same rifle as the 1894. PS- values on the Commem's IS for a mint condition rifle- if it has been shot to any degree, it is another shooter (for most). Pretty, tho.
