Usual proof marks on barrel and receiver including War department WD broad arrow. Most unusual thing is that this long rifle is smooth bore. Dark bore, no pitting visible. The action has been reworked with a deep “scallop” at the rear as if to fit a specific cartridge. Possibly for prison guard use? Very researchable.
