This North West Trade Gun will be ideal for your fur trade impression. Stocked in maple, this classic North West Trade Gun is correctly fitted with traditional hardware, a mix of brass and iron. This 20 gauge flint fowling gun is fully qualified for use in the NMLRA North West Trade Gun match, using patched round balls at paper targets, and bird shot at clay birds on the trap range. This trade gun has a bright and well maintained bore. Trigger reach is 14-1/4" to fit today's average size shooter and weight is 7.5 pounds.

The 42" barrel is octagon, with two wedding band transitions before tapering round to the muzzle. The barrel is finished to a chocolate brown. A brass turtle blade front sight is soldered behind the muzzle. The bore is .608" diameter, for our cast lead round ball and patch. We recommend our .595" pure lead round ball, patched with .010" Ox-Yoke patches, lubricated with Ox-Yoke Wonder Lube, for easy loading. We offer 20 gauge (.625 caliber) wads, cards, and shot for wing shooting. This trade gun has no rear sight, allowing it to qualify under NMLRA Trade Gun Match rules.

The long baluster wrist runs from the lock panels to the toe, and the comb seems to sit on top of the flowing wrist. This is classic architecture for early English muskets, especially the early Sea Service muskets, which apparently served as a model for the North West Trade Gun. The design is simple and functional, and these inexpensive guns were imported and sold by the Fur Trade Companies, for many decades. Flint and percussion trade guns were still popular long after the metallic cartridge arrived, due to the low cost of ammunition for muzzle loading guns. The flat brass buttplate is secured with two steel screws. The stock has a few minor handling marks from use and cleaning.

The bottom view shows the traditional large iron triggerguard, browned to match the barrel. The triggerguard of this North West Trade Gun is correctly surface mounted. One screw retains the rear of the triggerguard. The front bolt is also correctly installed, in a fashion unique to North West Trade Guns. Identical to a lock bolt, it is fitted upside down, or rather from the bottom, threaded into the tang from below.

No ramrod entry pipe is fitted, another correct feature. The two forward pipes are thin brass, with embossed grooves, much like the corrugations in cardboard, to give the pipes maximum strength against crushing or denting in hard use. The pipes allow the 3/8" ramrod to slide smoothly, to serve the barrel. The ramrod is fitted with a brass tip threaded to accept 10-32 cleaning and loading accessories. An antler loading tip is fitted on the opposite end and extends 1" past the muzzle. One lock bolt retains the sideplate and lock. The rear and front sideplate screws are actually a wood screw. The brass sideplate is cast in the form of a serpent, a traditional motif for the North West Gun.

Ignition for this Trade Gun is provided by this large Tryon flint lock by R.E. Davis. Well made and finished the lock has strong internals and a quick time. The lock is browned to match the barrel and the plate is engraved with a Sitting Fox in a circle. The tail of the lock plate is engraved BARNETT 1838. Make sure to order a dozen of our #Flint-Eng-8 hand knapped English gun flints for best sparking. Behind the pan the touch hole is drilled directly, without a vent liner, and is well centered on the pan. Below the lock a single trigger has been properly installed to give good leverage against the sear.
