can anyone tell me anything about this flintlock??

obviously its a .58 cal, but dont know who made it or if its worth anything.
It is just a decoration piece in my house, but if it has any value I will sell it to help fund a new flinter that I will actually use

Looks to be made by Investarms, (big capitol "I" in box). If that's an "AD" in the other box, it was made in 1978. The PN and anvil markings are Gardone black powder proof house marks. Just my guess.......

Value of the gun would be determined by condition. Especially the condition of barrel bore, (rust) Close up pics of lock show signs of exterior rust.

It is an Investarms Cabelas Big Bore Hawken Rifle. A rifle after the Lyman design. Basically, an Italian made knockoff of the TC Hawken. Should have a coil mainspring inside/on the lock.

Tight ball/patch combo should work just fine.

Cabelas has recently changed its contract, and now the Hawken is a Pedersoli made gun.

Is that a crack or a scratch on the left side?

it is a crack, after closer inspection of the gun, I think it is just going to stay where it is, because it looks good hanging on the wall. Up close it is pretty rough. At least I know what i have hanging up there now.

Tell You another thing wrong. IF, that is a piece of Cloth,holding In the Flint, get rid of It and replace It with a piece of Leather. If/when someone happens to shoot It, the cloth can hold an Ember. And, when a fresh load of Powder or when priming the Pan, bad things can happen !! Get rid the Cloth and put In Leather...
