Please click the image for a larger version
Flintlock halfstock single barrel fowler. 37-1/2" barrel of about 16 gauge bore with early style "X" silver embellishment on front sight. Lock plate marked "N.J.", otherwise unmarked. Metal parts have a medium patina overall with minimal pitting. Has a nice cutout brass barrel band. Stock is good, has a nice big cheek piece and attractive basket weave checkering on the wrist. Shows average wear and use with scattered handling marks and crack by the lock screw, in front of the lock and a small crack in the edge of the forearm. Mechanically fair, action isn't strong but seems to function. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
