Haha, the weapons are quaint. Maybe the caps serve as a primer for black powder muzzle load

I don't know anything about guns (well, except maybe shooting 303's straight when i was a kid)
but does this gun look like it has already had an explosion in the breach? The stock looks pretty damaged around that area.
