15 ga. Double barrel
« on: March 08, 2017, 04:21:20 PM »
For those interested GB has a 15 ga. dbl barrel flintlock shotgun.
See # 626534594
I have no part in this auction! This is for information only as double flints are rare.

Being a pigeon gun.........I suppose you could use it on "Stool Pigeons" :o ::)

Looks like a nicely made piece, I wonder why he omitted the ram rod?

He says it right in the discription, it's a pigeon gun. If they're anything like the birds around my parents place then they clump together and you'll probably only need one barrel to fill your limit.  ;)

Most pigeon guns did not have ramrods as they were not field guns. They were loaded from the bench.
