z Sold Horseback or Indian Canoe Gun (Cut down shotgun)

RJT#6359 -


An old, Sawed Off Shotgun with 13 inch barrels.  (YES IT IS LEGAL ANTIQUE PERCUSSION GUNS DO NOT HAVE A BARREL LENGTH RESTRICTION) It has an overall length of 29 inches.  The ramrod is 13 inches long.  The wood has had a coat of lacquer added in the pasted, and is missing the front entery pipe. The stock is in good condition with no breaks, chips or cracks.  Some other minor dings and abrasions show through the lacquer.  The back action locks both left and right, function very well.  The gun has a brown patina, and has not been cleaned.  The locks, hammers, trigger guard, butt plate, tang, etc. have no engraving or makers markings, but our just plain like most trade items.  The gun dates from the late 1850's period.  This was typical of trade shotguns of the era.  If you ever wanted a sawed off percussion shotgun to compliment your display, this is it.  I don't have a clue as to the history of the gun. The tacks on the stock make me think that it might be an Indian canoe gun,  It sure is interesting in an ugly sort of way.
