Original U.S. Double Barrel 16ga. German Silver Fitted Percussion Shotgun with Tiger Maple Stock - Circa 1840
Original Item: Only One Available. We just received this lovely Antique shotgun, along with about 200 other guns, from a collection that sat in an attic for close to 100 years. Fitted with engraved back action locks this is an unsigned American Double Barrel shotgun with spectacular striped tiger maple stock. It is nicely checkered at the wrist, and really is just lovely.
The mounts all appear to be made of German Silver and this gun presents very nicely. It features 29" 16 bore barrels, and measures 45" in overall length. Comes complete with the original brass-tipped ramrod.
In really nice condition, perfect for hanging on the wall, ready to display!
