    Anyone know of rifels from South Carolina in early 1800s from smiths by the name of Hoy? They made guns with fancy boxes built in and fancy shell inlays. Patrick Hoy was known to be a "straightner of rifels". I know they exsist and would like to have a photo of one.
    I do shoot some pyrodex and have a 45 cal kentucky and a newer 50 cal rifels.
    Thanks. felix
