I wasn't looking or a muzzle loader but I couldn't let it go for $130. Blanch 16 bore. Looks like the rib might have been re-soldered but it has some nice wood on it.

If the bores are good I would relay the ribs. Nice buy.

I wouldn't have passed up that deal either.

Looks nice on the outside. How are the bores?
Should drop the rod down the barrels to ensure its not got an old load still in it.
Good buy!

That is a bloody steal !! as suggested drop a rod down the barrels and see if it's loaded. Nice quality gun, and maybe a shooter !!
