Default Hatfield .50 Caplock (Oops, I did it again!)

One of those "I don't need it but can't pass it up" deals.

Very nice! Is that custom or company built? Never saw a company built Hatfield Rifle. That should be fun to shoot.

So far as I can tell it's by the original Hatfield company before they started using Pedersoli to build for them.

There are no markings on the top or side of the barrel - no name, no caliber, nothing. There is a number on the underside of the barrel as shown below.

I don't know how you fall into these deals my friend. That's a fine looking rifle.

Purdy gun. Now that's a long sighting plane I could use.

You would like it Muley. The rear sight is 11.5" forward of the breech plug and works well for tired old eyes. Also the 39" barrel is a slim 7/8" across the flats. The gun weighs 8 lbs. even.

I would like it. Even though i'm a Hawken kind of guy I do have a soft spot for long rifles.

Some pretty wood on that long gun as well. I will give you $200.00 for it.
