Early Trade Gun
Due to high competition, the butt stock of the early English trade guns were commonly patterned after the very popular and preferred French Fusil de Chase. Our Early Trade Gun follows this design and retains destinctive and unique English trade gun features such as the nailed on butt plate, large trigger bow, inverted tang bolt and sheet brass serpent side plate. This gun design pre-dates the famous North West Trade Gun., and makes a fine addition to your kit.
Basic trade guns include a walnut stained maple stock, The side plate, ramrod tubes and butt plate are brass. Barrel, lock and trigger guard are steel, and are finished blued or antiqued. The side plate is surface mounted. The butt plate is hand made and secured with authentic square head nails.
The Early Trade Gun is available in 28g or 20g smoothbore barrel. Barrel lengths are available in 36" or 42". Smoothbore barrels can be loaded with shot or ball which makes the Early Trade Gun a versatile weapon to harvest small or large game.
