An original American Plains Rifle in .48 caliber percussion. It has a heavy octagon 31" barrel marked on top "H. Sheets." It is mounted on a lovely full length, tiger maple style stock. Iron furniture supports a wood and brass ram rod. The engraved steel lock is marked "H. Sheets, Union - Ohio" and is activated by double set, adjustable trigger. All original and over all in antique fine condition this classic rifle appears shootable and was probably a "Buffalo Gun." It is the lowest one down in the image of 4 percussion long arms.
