D. Defibaugh percussion rifle, Bedford County, Pennsylvania

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.
