Early English Trade Gun Kit

36" barrel in 20 gauge


Stock Second



This gun is typical of the early trade period. The earlier style brass parts are copied from original pieces dug up at datable sites in Georgia and Virginia. This gun has a thicker wrist than the Type G and has a carved apron around the barrel tang typical of many early English trade guns.

This stock is a grade 6 curly maple but the ramrod channel got cut off center so a strip of the same wood was glued in and the channel recut. This can be seen in the photos below. The repair will be hard to discern when finished. This stock would be excellent as a painted version or stain it very dark. If you like a light stain, carve an incised line following the glue line and cut a matching one on the other side.

I generally use Colerain barrels for these kits but due to the current shortage of barrels the barrel on this kit is a Rice that I cut down to 36" and narrowed the breech to fit my pattern.

All parts are included to build the gun and the sight and barrel tennon dovetails have been cut. Pull is 13".
