1935 barrel by Charles Monroe Knupp

The following photo, although fuzzy, is the only one I have of a muzzleloader barrel that is reportedly marked, "Made by C.M. Knupp Feb. 1935 Bakersville Somerset County, PA". I hope to obtain better photos, including a photo that is clear enough to read the inscription. The barrel is significant because it helps to to substantiate that Charles Monroe Knupp was still building muzzle loading rifles in the 1930s.

This Somerset and Bedford County, Pennsylvania gunsmith project is intended to be a collaborative effort with gun collectors, historians, genealogists, etc. who may have information or photos to share.
