Type 'G' or Carolina Trade Gun Kit

 circa 1760

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. Barrel lengths up to 47". (Call or email me if you want a barrel shorter than 47".)



Breech plug is installed.






Solder on the tennons and front sight for you - add $50
