This fullstock percussion rifle is known as the "Michigan Rifle" and was manufactured in Italy for the Richland Arms Company of Blissfield, Michigan. The rifle is stocked in walnut and trimmed in brass furniture. The straight octagon barrel is blued and the percussion lock is color case hardened. The double set triggers fire set, or unset. The rifle appears to be lightly used with a well maintained bore. The stock does have some areas of open grain across the toe.

The .50 caliber barrel is 7/8" straight octagon finished to a dark blue. The bore is rifled with six lands and grooves with a moderate twist for a patched round ball. The bore is bright and has been well maintained. The factory sights consist of a small brass blade front sight and a brass rear sight.
The buttstock is shaped with the drooping lines most often associated with longrifles from the Lehigh valley. The buttplate has a modest curve to engage the shooter's shoulder. The patchbox has a large bezel and cam over center door. Beneath the door is a deep cut cavity for storing flints, patches, or other shooting accessories. The toe of the stock has some lines of open grain that were finished over by the factory when this rifle was assembled.

The triggerguard has a late Ohio influence with a finger spur on the rear of the bow and an offset curled grip rail. Trigger reach is 13-1/2" to fit today's average size shooter. Weight is 7.1 pounds.
The buttstock has a slender profile and is shaped without a cheek piece. The barrel is breeched with a short straight tang. The breech end of the barrel is marked with various Italian proof marks and the top flat is boldly stamped Richland Arms Co. Blissfield Michigan, Michigan Cal .50.
A short square toeplate protects the toe. The triggerguard is screwed into position. The factory 9mm diameter ramrod with 10-32 threads for loading and cleaning accessories is still fitted.
The percussion lock appears to be similar to the work of Daniel Naute of Palmetto armoury in Italy. The lock has a color case hardened finish with random blues and grays. The drum is fitted with a 1/4-28 threaded steel nipple.

The rifle is fitted with a double lever double set trigger. Properly tuned and adjusted the triggers can be set and fired in any sequence. Set the rear trigger to lighten the trigger pull when at the range or leave the triggers unset for use during hunting.
The side panel is fitted with a large flat brass sideplate inlet flush with the side panel. The stock is shaped without a cheek piece.

A simple utilitarian longrifle with a bright bore. The stock does have some cosmetic areas of open grain across the toe on the right hand side. Order it for a ten day visual inspection.
