    I was given a rifle but need to find a part for it, so I figured I needed to know exactly what I had first. Sorry, no photos. You'll have to make a mental image.
    It's a 45 cal percussion sidelock. 28 inch octogon barrel with half stock. Double set triggers with brass trigger guard. Brass patch box and butt plate. The markings simply say "cal 45", "Black powder only" and "Made in Italy". Plus there is a bold letter "I" inside a box.
    Can you identify this rifle and where might I start looking for a fly for it?
