Lifting Block ("trapdoor") Conversion, probably on P53 British Musket
Please help me to identify this Unknown Rifle
GENERALLY: I believe that this rifle started out as a P53 British Musket, but I don't know enough about them to be sure. Can anyone shed some light on who might have made the conversion, what exactly it is, and for whom it might have been made? Thank you!
