Antique PERCUSSION Combination RIFLE & SHOTGUN
Classic Hunting Gun in the American Frontier
Here we present an antique Over/Under Percussion Combination Gun, made circa the 1850s, likely in New York State. This gun features a .40 caliber rifled barrel over a .65 caliber smoothbore barrel. The advantage of having a single firearm that can fire two types of cartridges designed for rifled and smoothbore barrels is that a single gun can be used to hunt a very wide variety of game from deer to fowl and the shooter can choose the barrel appropriate for the target in seconds. These were supremely handy firearms that could also be used to defend the homestead.
This one features a brass butt plate and patch box mounted on the stock. The trigger guard acts as a pistol grip. There is a separate trigger and hammer for each barrel.
The overall condition is very good. The metal surfaces have a smooth, even, plum patina. The stock is in great shape. The bores are good. The action is strong.
Own the original! This is a legitimate antique and not a reproduction.
