Years ago I bought, from a sutler at Fort Ticonderoga, a full-stocked, tiger striped maple flintlock of .45 cal. The barrel is marked "BINGHAM"...I have been trying to find out something about the person who made this beautiful rifle...sure is a sweet shooter. All the gun furniture is iron...nothing flashy...kind of like a good looking woman who doesn't wear make up...only way I know how to describe the subtle beauty of this rifle. Does anyone have any information on this rifle maker?
Thanks...Ed

Welcome, Ed. Those .45 longrifles are great on deer and load down well for small game. I'm sure someone can help you with your rifle.

Welcome to the Fire.
Do you believe that nice rifle will like being named after a cheap wine? Annie Green Springs, yuk!

Load fast and aim slow.

Welcome to the fire. I bet that someone here more knowledgeable than myself can help you with your rifle question. Look foward to visiting with you at the fire.
