    I've exhausted most of my time and resources searching for what kind of gun this is.

    I bought a 1863 Springfield that had been sporterized. Beautiful gun for what it is..that was easy to ID.

    The second gun I purchased was missing some pieces, had some pieces replaced with modern stuff that I quickly removed. I am attaching pictures of this gun. There is a serial number on the right side of the barrel that is partially covered up and no other markings. Nice hammer and I like the buttstock, nose piece and trigger guard. Surface rust is plentiful but all mechanisms work. There is a weld and I am curious if it looks original or like it's a later fix...any help/advice/opinions/guesses would help.

    Thanks in advance...I'm just getting into antique guns now that I'm tired of the new gun market.

    the serial number, and only visual marking on the gun. I also found an X on the piece of metal behind the trigger,

    If I had to make a rush judgement, from the lock and furniture I would say it was a modern firearm.

    that's not unlikely!

    the hammer definitely modern...as I'm trying to learn more, could you tell me why you think so?

    Looks like a CVA kit Kentucky Rifle with a new barrel.

    Definitely an old CVA/ Jukar lock, stock and breech plug. Probably from around the late 60's to early 70's.:cool:
