This antique double shotgun was made for export to an American hunter post 1860. The upper rib of the 34" barrels are stamped Warranted London Fine Twist, and the rear of the rib does show some lifting from the solder joint. The wire twist pattern is faint, with a speckled brown patina. Trimmed in iron furniture, the furniture has a well aged gray brown patina. The walnut stock has been broken at the wrist and glued as well as having brown epoxy filled areas at the rear of the lock panels and tang. The locks are stamped Wm Moore & Co.. The percussion hammers do not align at the half or full cock notches, having had some internal part alterations in the past. With the upper rib starting to lift near the breech this shotgun is best used as a wall hanger or decoration.

The shotgun bores measure .765" to 770" at the muzzle, although the bottom of the barrels are stamped "11" we consider this to be a 10 gauge shotgun. Both bores have a frosted lightly pitted texture with some darker deeper pitting visible. The bottom of the barrels are marked with Birmingham definitive black powder proof marks for shotguns used from 1855 to 1925. The ramrod is a replacement and tape has been use to increase the rod diameter to fit the tapered ramrod pipes.
Stocked in straight grain European walnut, the stock has been broken from the upper lock panel on the right hand side around the left hand side. The checkering has a well worn appearance. The stock has numerous dents and handling marks from use. All of the furniture stands proud from wood shrinkage. The tail of the lock panel has an area of brown epoxy filler used.

The bar locks are engraved with simple borders, and more elaborate scroll work on the plate and hammers. The plate is stamped Wm Moore & Co.. Both hammers have a worn patina with considerable wear on the engraving pattern. The hammers do not properly align at the half or full cock notches.

Trigger reach is 13-1/4 and 14" which should fit todays average size shooter well. Weight is 8.8 pounds.
The lock panel has a filled brown epoxy chip at the tail and a visible glue joint across the upper lock panel. This shotgun has handling marks and wear associated with nearly 100+ years.

This antique has some lifting solder joints at the breech. The stock has epoxy repairs to the wrist and lock panels. This shotgun is best used as a wall hanger or decoration. Order it for ten day inspection.
