Click on an image to enlarge
What a cool looking gun! This is the pattern of gun that is known as a "Blunderbuss". This is a half-stock designed flintlock blunderbuss with an 1815-dated East India Company lock. The lockplate markings include the clear "1815" production date behind the hammer on the lockplate. One thing that makes it interesting is that in front of the hammer, it has the stamping of the Rampant Lion with the "2" underneath pan. This is the marking of the famous East India Company. Many people know this name because of movies like Pirates of the Caribbean. They were a large Company that influenced trade around the world. The mechanics of the lock still work well on both positions. These blunderbusses have a large flair on the end of the barrel. This one has about a 10 bore that expands to a 2-1/2 inch flared muzzle. It has the detailed 19 inch two stage design to the octagonal to round barrel. The barrel has Indian Mughal-style floral engravings all over that makes it stand out. It was factory finished with a bright metal finish with brass furnishings. It has the brass triggerguard, buttplate, ramrod channel guide and nose cap. It has the single piece dark Walnut Monte-Carlo style stock that has a hand-checkered grip wrist with a cheekpiece. Behind the triggerguard, it has the single sling swivel to bottom edge. The gun has a thick wrist as is seen on English military muskets of the period. Under the barrel, it is missing ramrod. This is a gun that will really stand out when you show your friends your relic room.
