Picked this up at a yard sale and just want to know what it is. Going to take it to a gunsmith to check the fireablity of it

Can not seem to insert a photo here so will post in the photo section.

I have no friends and no one would miss me if i was gone from this earth.

Pretty good kit.. and Dad did a good job on the stock.. the works its self was all assembled so more of a drop in deal.. This one didn't have a set trigger like Scouts, but looks much the same..

Pop never fired it.. did a cold blue number on it that came out well.. I gave it to my brother in trade for another piece, and he's going to do a Hamp number and hang it in the family room..

The old boy did such a good job on it, i gave him a bowie knife the following Holiday, can't remember which one, but it came out perfect, and i still have it. Maybe one of these days i'll get unlazy and put an edge on it..

I keep threatening to buy one of those 36 cal 1858 Colts that Cabelas sells as a kit.. the bowie would go great with it.. Maybe one of these days a bunch of us can do this at the same time, might be fun for a number of us to do this.. If i remember right last time i priced them they weren't to expensive... Sound good to anyone else..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.
