W & D Border marked percussion rifle, Bedford County, PA

The lock on this rifle is marked "W & D" Border", which I believe stands for the gunsmiths William Border and his son Daniel B. Border. I'm sorry the lock photo is so blurry; the rifle was behind glass.

These photos of the patchbox, entry pipe, and lock bolt plate were taken by an individual who made a contemporary replica of the rifle.
