Charles Monroe Knupp percussion rifle

The photos below show a percussion rifle made by Charles Monroe Knupp of Bakersville, Somerset County, Pennsylvania. His sister Barbara Knupp was married to the gunsmith Jonathan Dormayer ("Dunmeyer"}, and this rifle is a nearly exact copy of a rifle by Jonathan Dormayer that was auctioned in early 2020, and is nearly identical to another Jonathan Dormayer rifle that is included on this website. The engraving on this rifle looks a bit shaky, compared to the aforementioned Dormayer rifles.

For those who are interested, some larger detail photos of the same rifle are included below.
