The OTHER gun... (Joseph Manton?)

Well, m co-worker brought in his other shootin iron today. It appears to be another percussion rifle.

This is the funky one with a hexagonal bore - the bore looks to be similar to a thirty-eight - much smaller than the other one. The top of the barrel says L&K, and the side of what I would call the receiver says Joseph Manton, and under that "Warranted".

It has a brass storage slot in the side, (presumably for caps, balls, and patches?) On the other (driver) side of the stock, there is an inlaid brass star with eight points. It has blade sights.

Two triggers? With what looks like an adjusting screw of some variety? Is this a half-cock feature of some sort?

As always, any help would be appreciated - (You guys are the best. I sure am learning a little in my time on the planet!)

Pic is attached. Please forgive - it's a cell phone pic, and not a very good one. Maybe it might help, if anyone knows a thing or two 'bout it.

Thank you guys once again!

-L.
