This Bedford County, Pennsylvania long rifle is signed "D. Defibaugh". The owner describes this rifle as having been made by David Defibaugh of Everett circa 1870. I forgot to ask the owner why it is attributed to David Defibaugh rather than Daniel Defibaugh.
The following photo does a good job of showing the dainty size of the Defibaugh rifle by comparing it to the ultra-rare but regularly sized breach-loading combination gun by Sheridan Leach. I edited the photo to remove a third rifle.
