This is a typical mid 18th century trade
gun with a more slender wrist, serpent sideplate and rear sight. The rear sight was patterned from
one found on an original trade gun. The stock profile was taken from the Bumford trade gun but the
butt was widened to fit the typical Type G buttplate.
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 by R. E. Davis and the barrels are by Colerain.
Available in 20,
or 24 gauge smoothbore.
36" or 42".
Walnut stock is available
at extra cost.
Dovetails for front sight and
tennons are already milled.
