Hi Cerjack,
My rifle, unfortunately, is not in perfect condition, it is missing the front barrel band and the ramrod shaft has been replaced at some time but apart from that it is pretty good. If the woodworm on yours has been treated correctly it should give you no more problems but I think in time the repairs to the stock could be done better and the wormholes hidden with a good furniture restorers wax. I agree it is a form of rifle that is difficult to come by without paying a lot and you are lucky to get one at a reasonable price. It is a nice and unusual piece with a lovely barrel, thank you for posting it. If you use the search for "Miquelet" you will get more detailed photos of my example and a couple of period photos of these rifles.
My Regards,
Norman.
