This NorthWest Indian Trade Gun is stocked in walnut and trimmed in a traditional mixture of brass and iron furniture. Assembled from a parts, stock, and barrel by Curly Gustompskiwith a R.E. Davis round faced lock fitted in place of the original lock. This light weight trade gun is marked with HB trademark on the buttstock and has a well aged patina finish to simulate years of use. Unsigned the fitting of the lock, and patina finish by R. Miller. Weighing in at 6 pounds the trade gun has a trigger reach of 14" making it well suited for today's average size shooter.

The 24 gauge tapered octagon-to-round barrel is a handy 26" long. The bore measures .578" and would be ideal for use with our 24 gauge cards and wads. The octagon breech tapers to a sixteen flat transition to a single wedding band to round. The exterior of the barrel is finished to a dark brown. A brass blade front sight is soldered behind the muzzle.

Classic N.W. Trade gun lines can be identified in the piece, including the long baluster wrist that is derived from the British military muskets of the period. The side of the buttstock has a Hudson's Bay HB marking. A topside view of the trade gun shows off the tapered comb, wrist, and flared lock panels. At the rear of the comb a brass thumbnail extension of the buttplate loops over the heel and is inlet flush with the comb. The sheet brass buttplate is retained by small square nails. Nailed on buttplates are one of the three common mounting patterns found on antique Northwest Trade Guns. The wrist rises up to meet the breech of the barrel. An panel of raised carving surrounds the plug. A circle fox stamp is marked on the breech end of the barrel in addition to LONDON a period mark of quality.

From below the rounded toe of the trade gun can be seen. The long iron triggerguard is surface mounted. A inverted tang bolt secures the triggerguard ahead of the bow, while two screws secure the grip rail. The ramrod is held in place by a single brass ramrod pipe. No entry pipe has been used on the gun, in typical Trade Gun fashion. The tapered ramrod is fitted with a flared brass tip for seating wads and cards. The ramrod has no provisions for threaded accessories. A 1" section of wood at the muzzle has been replaced with a neatly fitted and shaped piece of walnut. A large serpentine style sideplate has been inlet into the side panel.

This R.E. Davis round faced lock is designed and styled after early English trade locks. Locks of this design, and even with similar engraving are found on mid-18th century era longrifles and fowlers from all regions. The lock plate is finished to a speckled gray patina, simulating years of exposure. The cock is fitted with a #FLINT-ENG-7 7/8" English musket flint. Be sure to order a dozen spare flints, sold separately. The long single trigger has the appearance of triggers commonly found on pre-1830 Northwest Trade Guns.
