Antique 16 Bore Pinfire Double Barreled Shotgun (English)


1 in stock


This here is a stunning example of Double Barreled (Side by side) shotgun in the Lefaucheux Pinfire patent!

Dated around 1860 and manufactured in Birmingham, England, this fabulous shotgun is in an absolutely fine condition! All parts and mechanisms are in perfect working order and functionality.

Both the metal and wood are in a superb state, especially when considering the guns age.

A very much heavy duty and solid build, this shotgun is certainly more practical than it is elegant. Really built to last this one!
Still a lovely design with a chequered fore end and wrist on the walnut stock. The back action locks and mount are plain.

The Birmingham proofs are clearly stamped, the top rib with number “463” and small shield with initials “EBL”.

It features 28 inch Damascus barrels which are also in a fine condition, still retaining much of their original quality.

Overall this shotgun has clearly been well looked after through the years and I do hope it can find a most distinguished & deserved place on display or as part of a collection!
