This early buttplate is from the second type of trade gun bartered by the French during the fur trade era, offered until the French were defeated by the British and ejected from Canada in 1763. Now known as the Type 'D' fusil, this general type had many variations, as did French military models during this century. One identifying feature is the French style finial at the top of the comb. This buttplate features a flat finial with no cast-in engraving. Apparently the Type 'D' fusils were made with various triggerguard finials that do not match the buttplate. Made without a lug under the front comb, this buttplate requires three un-plated iron screws. This buttplate is found on French fowling guns or English trade guns made in French fashion. Wax cast in brass or steel. See our Type 'D' parts.

Available in wax cast brass or steel.

Overall length 4-7/8", width 1-15/16", comb 5".
