You will like this very unique Morgan L. Rood .36 caliber rifle with three swivel barrels. It was made in Marshall, Michigan between 1851-1859. Overall length is 46 1/4". The barrels are 30 1/4". Each bore has strong lands and grooves. They use, but there are no issues at all. Action is smooth and tight. It works perfectly. Wood to metal fit is excellent. The was once a compass in the stock, but only the base of the compass remains. The barrel assembly rotates manually by depressing a release button on the upper tang and rotating the barrels by hand. There is very very slight movement between the barrels and the frame. It is not an issue, but I want you to be aware. I think you will like this three barrel rifle a lot. It will make a great addition to any collection.
