z Sold Canoe Gun (Cut down shotgun)

RJT#4530 -


A delightful, Sawed Off Shotgun with 14 inch barrels.  (YES IT IS LEGAL ANTIQUE PERCUSSION GUNS DO NOT HAVE A BARREL LENGTH RESTRICTION)It has an overall length of 31 inches.  The ramrod is15 inches long.  The wood has virtually all its original finish with a slight crack on the right side of the forearm,  but no other breaks chips and only minor dings and abrasions.  The back action 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 line scribed around their boarder.  The gun dates from the late 1850's to 1860 period.  It is marked Henry Sears & Co. on each lock plate and the top of the barrels is marked "London Fine Twist". It is of good sound solid quality with almost no pitting in the bores.  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 an indian canoe gun,  It sure is interesting.
