This antique double shotgun is a sturdy plain grade shotgun, apparently made in Birmingham, England circa 1860 for export to the United States. This antique shotgun has been refinished on both the metal and wood. The Damascus barrels have been polished and finished to a dark blue. The locks and furniture have been polished and refinished to a dark blue. The breech is fitted with modern stainless steel nipples. Trigger reach is 14-1/8" and weight is 10.3 pounds.

The 27" barrels appear to be full original length and have the catch for the ramrod just behind the muzzle. This double has Birmingham English proof marks under the breech. The breech is stamped with a 10 gauge marking, but the bores measure 0.799/0.800 which is nominally a 9 gauge. The rib is marked London Fine Twist on the upper rib. Both bores are mostly bright with some frosting and appear very shootable. Like most original percussion doubles, both bores are cylinder bored, with no apparent choke. You can shoot good patterns if you use our 9 gauge Circle Fly over-powder cards, fiber wads, and over-shot cards. Use lead or bismuth shot. Never use steel shot in a antique shotgun.

Stocked in straight grain walnut the stock has been refinished, but still has some scattered handling marks that were not completely removed. The checking on the wrist has been recut. The lower right hand lock panel has a cosmetic crack 3/8" long. Fitted with English style furniture. The buttplate comb has the short pointed comb that just extends over the heel. The long tang of the hooked breech extends down the wrist to provide strength to the thinnest point of the stock. The bottom view shows the slim architecture of the butt and wrist, as they join the wide breech. The small oval initial plate and oval escutcheons around the wedge keys have been covered with layers of stain and finish. A single wedge key retains the barrels. The key has a capture slot but no capture pin is installed. The ebony finished ramrod on this shotgun is antique, but it has been broken on the rear end and reassembled with the antique covered worm. The length is now 1/2" too short. To position the ramrod just behind the catch behind the muzzle a small nail has been installed in the ramrod channel to act as a stop for the ramrod.

Marked FENTON, both locks work smoothly with secure half cock and full cock notches. Both hammers align at the half and full cock notches. The exterior surfaces of the locks have been buffed and finished to a dark blue. The breeches are fitted with modern stainless steel .255-28 nipples for No. 11 percussion caps. Order our nipple #ROS-05-S stainless steel, or #ROS-05-I hardened steel if you require spares.

This antique double barrel percussion shotgun has serviceable bores. The metal and wood have both been refinished. Remote test firing by string is wise before shooting any antique of unknown providence. Order it for a ten day visual inspection. You will be delighted. Else if it does not fit you, return it in unfired condition for same-day refund. Postage is your only risk, when you order any one-of-a-kind gun from Track, whether new, used, or antique.
