SOLD PENDING FUNDS. This is an original antique 36 caliber percussion full stock rifle by Jacob Beachler Madison Co. Anderson, Indiana. The overall length is 51 1/2" with a 36" barrel and a 13 1/2" trigger pull. The weight is 9 lbs. The bore is good with strong rifling and the lock and set triggers function correctly. The lock is marked W.M. Ashton Kenton, Ohio. The stock is maple with brass furniture. THE RIFLE HAS A MAJOR ISSUE. THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE STOCK HAS BEEN EXPOSED TO A FIRE AND THE CHARRED WOOD HAS BEEN SCRAPED AWAY. THE BRASS INLAYS ARE STILL PRESENT BUT NOW ARE RAISED DUE TO THE WOOD REMOVAL. THE LEFT SIDE OF THE STOCK IS IN GREAT SHAPE AND NOT EFFECTED BY THE FIRE. THE RIFLE CAN BE USED AS IS OR THE RIGHT SIDE CAN BE RESTORED BY A SKILLFUL WOOD WORKER. Additional photos are available upon request.
