This is one of John Shell's later gun, number 308. Guns have been known with numbers over 400. Shell was born in 1790 and died in 1875.

I wonder how many of Shells guns are out there. If you have one and would like to show it with this one, email parifles@earthlink.net and we will post it for you. It would be great if we could get them "all."
