Please click the image for a larger version
Double barrel pinfire shotgun, marked on left lock "PRUNIER ARQer" and on right lock "A VIENNE". 27-1/2" barrels, 12 gauge. Metal parts are a clean light gray with intricately engraved screws and borders around screws. Stock wrist was broken and repaired soundly long ago with four riveted plates. Wood shows an added finish and is otherwise free of cracks and chips. Right barrels have some rippling dents on the underside about 3" from the muzzle. Right hammer nose broken off, illustrating the tremendous stress that pinfire hammers were subjected to. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
