Very Rare 1st Model Jennings Rifle (AL3723)

Very Rare 1st Model Jennings rifle. Serial number 594. Made in 1847. Very rare gun. This model came out of the design of the Hunt rifle and led to the Smith and Wesson Volcanic and eventually Winchester. Metal has a grayish brown patina. Wood is very good. Action works. The pill mechanism is missing and the gate is a well-made replacement. Both the top of the barrel and the hammer are engraved, but the action is plain. Bore has strong rifling. Very rare gun!!
