Sawed Off Shotgun with 12 inch barrels. It has an overall
length of 29 inches. The ramrod is missing. The wood has virtually all its original finish with
no cracks, breaks chips and only minor dings and abrasions. The locks,
both left and right, function crisply. The gun has an even, pleasant,
brown patina, which is smooth and uncleaned. The locks, hammers, trigger
guard, butt plate, tang, etc. have a nice light engraving. The gun dates
from the late 1850's to 1860 period. It is marked Perkins on the lock plates and the top of the barrels is marked "Perkin's London Fine Twist". It is of good
sound solid quality. If you ever wanted an attractive, sawed off
percussion shotgun to compliment your display, this is it. I don't have a
clue as to the history of the gun. Could it be Confederate? Sure, or maybe an express agents gun. The tacks on the stock make me think that it might be a canoe gun, It sure is interesting.
