Re: Great deal on Brophy Plans and Specs ....
The barrels are 30 inches and I believe are Damascus. I can see a pattern flowing on the barrels. I have never seen these before. There is a break in the rib about 2 inches from the breach end of the barrels. It is just a line where two separate pieces of metal come together. I am assuming that is the joint check. What was that for?
I have been away from guns since Vietnam. Just getting interested in these because I have this one that belonged to my great grandfather and a J.N. Scotts muzzle loader that was my great-great grandfathers. I've had these guns since '76 but never did anything with them.
