    Had a fellow that shoots these tell me it's probably OK for reduced black powder loads which is good enough for me. Probably never shoot it anyway. He fired one he cleaned up that was in worse shape with no problems. I still need to get the metal plate made and the base of the forestock repaired on the inside along with either making or repairing the hammer spring.

    Found a guy that makes the hammer spring and have it on hand now. I'll have to fit it to the rifle yet, hopefully that will go well.

    I recently picked up, from a U.K. dealer, an ex Nepalese Royal palace East India Company musket that has very similar corrosion on the underside of the barrel to your rifle. I regard these as "curios" or collector's/wall-pieces, not shooters, that have been deactivated by corrosion. Personally, I wouldn't like to try shooting one of these for fear of the thing blowing up in my face.

    In the U.K. we can legally own these antique guns, without a licence, provided that we don't attempt to shoot/use them.
