Early French Trade Gun

in 20 gauge




This is a nice gun that was assembled by Joe Gondek of Blue Ridge Rifle Works. It has a 44" oct-round barrel in 20 gauge, iron mounts and a early style lock by Davis. The stock is a nice piece of walnut which is stained dark. The hardware has been browned. I have rebuilt the lock as it had problems going off at half cock and not staying in full cock. The lock is fast and sparks great. The wood to metal fit is very good. This gun was probably made 20+ years ago but is in very good condition with a good bore. Well cared for gun. The sideplate and trigger guard are not inlet which is the only minor problem I can find with the gun.

Weight is 7 lbs. 5 oz.  Pull is 14".
