That long rifle has a drum percussion. I can’t make out anything on the right side that indicates flint conversion. So reckon it was an original cap gun. 1830, damn! Like The First Original cap gun.

I've got a sweet TC Renegade in .54 that I picked up from a fellow Hunt Talker, a .50 call single shot pistol that I inherited from Dad, and these:

1858 design, Pietta in need of some work (Cylinder timing is off)
1851 Navy Arms Colt w/brass frame
Pedersoli Walker
The cartridge gun is dad's Hawes Western Marshall in 45 Colt. It's a 1960's vintage import built by JP Sauer & Sohn.
