This antique percussion double barrel shotgun is inlaid Con Javelle Magno on the upper rib and St. Etienne on the lock plates. The curly walnut stock is trimmed in iron furniture with a Flobert style triggerguard. The Damascus barrels have aged to a silvery gray with speckled brown patina , the Damascus pattern is faintly visible on portions of the barrel.

The 33" Damascus barrels have 16 gauge bores that measure .664" on the right hand barrel, and .663" on the left hand barrel. The bores are frosted with some light scattered pitting. They appear very shootable. Our 16 gauge wads and cards should be a snug fit in these bores. Use only lead or Bismuth shot in antique double barrel shotguns. Both muzzles are .663" I.D, .720" O.D. with fairly thick walls.
The walnut buttstock has attractive figure over the length of the stock. The buttplate is wide, tall, nearly flat to spread the felt recoil over a large area. The triggerguard is shaped with a large curled bow at the front, in what we think of today of as a Flobert style.

Trigger reach is 13-3/4" which will fit today's average size shooter well. This fine shotgun weighs. 8.4 pounds.
The buttplate has a short tapered comb in mid to late 19th century fashion. The long strap tang extends down the wrist to add strength to this most fragile area of any shotgun. The tang bolts are accented with engraving around the screws. A engraved panel overlaps the joint from the tang to the hooked breech. The upper rib of the barrel is inlaid Con Javelle Magano. The recessed areas around the nipple display some texture from corrosive antique percussion caps.
The steel buttplate stands just proud of the stock due to wood shrinkage. The rounded toe is fitted with a sling swivel stud and swivel. A matching swivel is mounted to the middle ramrod pipe. The Flobert style triggerguard is threaded to the triggerplate with the grip rail secured with two screws. The mounting screws have engraved heads with engraved accents around the border. The screw slots on these screws show some slot wear.

The triggerplate is shaped with a very fancy front finial to display the fine inletting skills of the maker. The ramrod pipe is shaped with a similarly designed skirt. The antique ramrod has a flared brass tip and appears to be original. The opposite end is fitted with a steel tip threaded with a male thread to accept a reversable worm. The worm is missing.
The front action percussion lock has aged to a gray patina with traces of a blue finish remaining. The lock plate is shaped with a sweeping curve along the front edge, and a very slight curve along the lower edge. The tail is shaped with a relieved molding with a engraved shell design. The screws are accented with very light engraving around the ends. The lock plate is inlaid St. Etienne. The hammers are nicely sculpted and reach over the high flash fence on tang. The hammer spurs are checkered to provide a secure grip.

The locks have the crisp snap of quality as the sear drops into the half cock and full cock notches. The hammers properly align at the half and full cock notches.
The walnut stock has attractive pattern through the buttstock. The shotgun is symmetrical and could easily be used by a right or left hand shooter.

This double barrel shotgun is a fine piece of craftsmanship from the mid 19th century. We always recommend that you proof fire the barrels, and carefully examine them before shouldering the gun with full loads. Fine original antique shotguns should never be loaded with modern steel shot. Use lead shot for trap competition and upland game hunting. Use the new Bismuth non-toxic shot for ducks and geese.
