This is a typical mid 18th century trade
gun with a more slender wrist and serpent sideplate. The stock profile was taken from the Bumford trade gun but the
butt was widened slightly to fit the typical Type G buttplate. All of the
brass parts were patterned after ones dug up here in Virginia.
Only available with a plain maple stock. These
look great painted in blue or red.
There are some finished examples on the
Trade Gun page.
The locks are Jim Chamber's Virginia style and the barrels are by Rice.
Available in 20,
or 24 gauge smoothbore.
