I have read that some one tried to reverse engineer a rifle like that to build one in today’s term but it couldn’t be done.

It was a few years ago,but I'll see if i can find where I read it.

 

 

Its still  awesome

I recall the American Rifleman had an article on that airgun a while back. If I remember accurately, it was concluded that while it can not be ascertained with certainty that this was the actual rifle taken on the expedition, all evidence seems to indicate that it is.
 
That gun unexpectedly became an enormous tool for the officers, as it was always brought out and demonstrated for Indians they met. 200+ years later, we are still awestruck by it.
