Interesting Trigger profile!

What is that stuff on the left side with what looks like a red ribbon tied to it?

Nice looking

Aha...I have one of those given to me...Guitar string that is RINGED to better clean the touch hole I'm told... I have it secured to the trigger guard with artificial sinew...

That's pretty slick set up ya got there...

Thanks!

That gun has the look of one made in the 70s or 80s, is it that old?
