This modern percussion target rifle features a .48 caliber 1-1/8" tapered octagon Goodoien barrel that is 38-1/2" long. The American black walnut stock is shaped with a thumb hole grip, and is fitted with a curved rubber recoil pad. The stock has a repaired crack that runs through the entire wrist. The L&R percussion lock, and iron furniture are blued. A globe front sight and Anschutz peep sight are fitted to the barrel. Trigger reach is 13-1/2" and the weight is 12.9 pounds.

Best quality parts include a barrel by the now retired barrel maker Mr. Jim Goodoien. A serious student of the best rifle barrel makers of yesterday and today, Jim has mastered their techniques. After retiring as partner and manager of a large specialty printing company, Jim focused his efforts on creating the best rifle barrels for his fellow shooters. His hobby is shooting, and his passion was perfection. He outfitted his shop with huge twin gun drills, rifling machines of his own design, massive milling machines, and special lathes. Starting with selected round steel stock, Jim drilled holes that are nearly perfectly straight. Bores are reamed to a mirror finish, using special reamers made in his shop. Rifling grooves are slowly cut in many passes, until correct depth. Outside flats are milled octagon to insure that the bore is perfectly concentric. The bores are hand lapped until satisfied by Jim's critical eye.

The .48 caliber Goodoien barrel is cut rifled with eight lands and grooves with a slow twist for a patched round ball. The 38-1/2" octagon barrel is 1-1/8" across the flats at the breech, and tapers to 1" at the muzzle. The false muzzle adds another 1-1/2" to the barrel when it is installed. The bore is bright and is ready to shoot. The barrel's exterior is blued, with a few bright spots in the finish from handling. The barrel is stamped J. Goodoien Blaine, MN. An Anschutz peep sight is mounted to the rear of the barrel. This sight features windage and elevation adjustments by turning click adjustable knobs. These pieces are well fitted, snug, secure, and easily adjusted. The original foam carton for the sights is included and has a rubber eye disk. A large globe front sight that accepts inserts is mounted 1" behind the muzzle. It is currently fitted with a post insert that has been painted orange for better visibility. Ten additional inserts are included. An additional rear sight that is screw adjustable for windage and elevation is mounted to a raised block 7-1/2" ahead of the breech.

The figured American black walnut is shaped with a thumb hole grip, and is finished to a low sheen. The stock was cracked all the way through the wrist and has been repaired. The repaired crack runs from the top of the wrist, to the rear of the lock plate, and down to the trigger. We note epoxy can be seen along the crack line. The steel trigger guard is blued to match the barrel. The grip rail of the trigger guard stands proud of the wood. The buttstock is fitted with a curved rubber recoil pad. The Monte Carlo cheek piece can be seen wrapping over the top of the buttstock. The forend is shaped with a Schnabel tip. No under rib or ramrod is used in this design, since this is not a hunting rifle for field use.

The L&R percussion lock is blued to match the barrel. The lock has a strong mainspring and functions as it should. The lock is mounted to the stock with a single bolt that passes through a tear drop shaped side plate on the opposite side. The percussion drum is well supported by the lock plate and is fitted with a 1/4-28 nipple. The single trigger provides a smooth release of the lock, with very light pressure.
