rifle builder?

picked up a really nice custom rifle last week and I am looking for any info on the builder. R.M. SPECHT, is the name on the rifle, suppose to be a "local" builder. the rifle is a Jacob Dickert, Lancaster style, with ingraved brass and carved wood stock. barrel is a 32" long, 45 cal., 13/16" Douglas barrel, with a large siler lock. very nice rifle. appears to have been built in the 1960,s or early 70,s. any info would be great.

Re: rifle builder?

thanks wpa, that gave me some good leads. he appears to have been a member and was quite active in the late 70's/early 80's. I'm still going to search. thanks.
