Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a great looking gun that was used as an illustration piece in the wonderful new book on Confederate & Southern Agent Marked Shotguns by Russ Pritchard, Jr. & John Ashworth, Jr. The book covers the shotguns that were often pressed into military service by Southern soldiers, especially the cavalry. On pages 254 and 255, they have multiple illustrations of this exact gun. It is one of the guns that was sold by a retailer just outside of Richmmond, C. Leonard. Charles Leonard's business was located in Petersburg, Virginia. This gun was made in Birmingham, England and brought to Virginia for commercial sale. The bottom of the full-length 32 inch barrels have the Birmingham proof markings. At the breech of the barrel, it has the two pairs of one thick and one thin silver inlays. Each barrel fires a blast of 12 Gauge or as the English say, 12 Bore. Along the rib of the barrel top it has the desirable marking "C. LEONARD PETERSBURG, VIRGINIA" in jeweler quality engraving. At the breech of the barrels it has the two silver bands. It is designed with the 2 back action style lockplates and they each have the engraving that include floral designs. Both of the lockplates catches on both positions just as they should. The stock is made of a single piece of wood with a pretty look with a few ancient cracks repaired on the back side of the lockplate towards the barrel. On the front flat of the shoulderstock, it has the inlaid cap box. This is a cool looking classic style double barrel shotgun with the desirable Petersburg, Virginia retailer marking of Charles Leonard.
