Please click the image for a larger version
Ethan Allen American percussion shotgun. Serial number 240. Marked on locks "E.ALLEN&Co.MAKERS." and on barrel rib "Fine Stub Twist". 32" barrels, 12 gauge bores. Metal parts are clean with fine twist finish on the barrels and nicely engraved surfaces otherwise, and a little pitting on the left lock. Nice original shotgun ramrod with covered ball puller. Stock is nicely checkered in the wrist and forearm, lightly cleaned overall, but showing little wear and use with beautiful grain in the butt. Has a small repaired flake above the lock with associated small chip in the lock mortise. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
