BAVARIAN Antique Johann WURFFLEIN of ANSBACH Double Barrel Shotgun German
GERMAN Percussion Double Barrel Hunting Gun
Here we present an antique Double Barrel Percussion Side by Side Shotgun, made sometime in the mid-19th Century in Bavaria.
Johann Wurfflein was a prominent gunmaker from Ansbach, Bavaria in the mid-1800s. This concurrent to probable relatives operating successfully in the United States, Andrew & John Wurfflein of Philadelphia, who immigrated circa 1832 & 1844, respectively.
This shotgun is the epitome of Bavarian styling, with a backwards sloping butt stock, generous cheek rest, decorative carving, carved wooden pistol grip extension off of the trigger guard, and subtle German silver inlaid maker’s mark on the barrel rib which reads “JOH. WURFFLEIN IN ANSBACH”. This one also features hammer block safeties and sling attachments. This would have been a stellar double for hunting fowl and small fur bearers in Central Europe.
The overall condition is very good. The action is excellent! The bore is smooth and patinated. Beautiful stock that shows use but remains solid. A fantastic piece of German craftsmanship!
Own the original! This is a legitimate antique and not a reproduction.
Barrels are 31-1/8 inches.
Caliber: Approximately 20 Gauge Percussion (.62 caliber bores)
