#4834 Perkins 12ga (I think!) 36" percussion double barrel shotgun

Description

#4834 Perkins 12ga (I think!) percussion double barrel shotgun with very impressive 36” long barrel with wide flat upper rib that has either copper or “red-gold” inlays and some light engraving. This was definitely a better-that-average grade percussion shotgun in its day, and quite uncommon with the longer length barrels. The metal is very good, although has some light scattered pitting (mostly on the top rib) and the bannered script on the rib center is about worn to illegible status. No ammount of any orginal finish worth mentioning; just a thin age patina, as can be seen in the photos. The wood is above what is usually seen on a percussion shotgun for overall condition. It has just the lightest of use marks and only a small to medium forestock sliver on one side and a mentionable toe chip at the bottom of the buttplate. The triggerguard is tastefully engraved, as are the locks and hammers, and there are some nice German Silver accents (escutcheons, etc), although the rear portion of the triggerguard may be an old repaired replacement, as there is a crack through at the mounting screw. It also has a small percussion cap accessory compartment in the bottom of the stock. Likely this was an English imported scattergun, as the only Perkins that I can find in my American makers book are all far too early to have made this gun (all being in the late 1700s and early 1800s). All-in-all, a very impressive, very handsome, and well made shotgun. There are lots of pictures of this neat old gun, so if they all do not load up, be sure to e-mail me and I’ll forward them along to you. $995
