Default IDing a flintlock musket

Hello all, I recently bought a .62 caliber musket and I'm trying to figure out some info on it. There isn't much on it in the way of identification aside from proofing marks, the word London along the top of the barrel and a clearly unoriginal rear sight. It was advertised as a Northwest Fur Trade 'Chief Gun'.

a pic of the entire rifle would be nice. I can't seem to locate any info on the Whately brand.

A full pic would be nice. I can't find any info on a Whately brand.

Kando,
I haven't been on here for a while, they won't permit me to post a U R L to help yet. If you search " Track of the Wolf Logo " or just their site you can find the logo. It looks like part of the logo in the photo with the rear sight on the barrel. Also the tag looks a lot like the resale tags they use. Mad_Jack
