A senior citizen is thinking of selling an old rifle he has had for many years. He says it is a "W S Scott" cap & ball musket in .577 cal. It has a bayonet and scabbard and is supposed to be from the year 1844. I have checked Flayderman's Guide, Blue Book and the internet without success. If anyone has any information on this old rifle, I would appreciate hearing from you. I am aware that in that era, there were many small arms manufacturers. I have not seen it so I can't offer much more information about it.
