Customer Question
I'm just needing a...

I'm just needing a ballpark value for a rifle I received from my Fathers estate. Its a long rifle black powder, stamped GR Douglas on the side of the octagon barrel. Its in very good condition, seems to have all the parts like the loading rod. The wood stock is beautiful with very interesting grain, not sure what kind of wood it is but its very pretty. Can you help? Thanks, John

Expert's Assistant: How can the Gunsmith help you with your firearm? Is there anything else the Gunsmith should be aware of?

Oh, it is a 50 cal.
