Early English Trade Gun Kit

36" barrel in 20 gauge

Beech stock



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.

The stock is beech. I generally use Colerain barrels for these kits but due to the current shortage of barrels the barrel on this kit is a Rice barrel that I cut down to 36" and narrowed the breech to fit my pattern. It is stamped with "LONDON" as well as view and proof marks on the top.

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