The rifle leans heavily toward North Carolina but there are obvious traits from elsewhere. It has an aged finish, not beat to death looking but like a well loved piece that had stayed in the family and used for many years. The muzzle is coned deeply to allow for some radical filing at the muzzle – not decorative but to make it appear as if the gun had been freshed out repeatedly over time right up to to its usable limit. The muzzle is also dinged and worn to look like rod wear.

The blade is a copy of a blade historically connected to George Rogers Clark, the original had lost its handle. On this handle, the fittings are iron and the grip is antler.
