Please click the image for a larger version
Double barrel percussion shotgun, marked on locks "T&WC BIDDLE PHILA" and on barrel rib "FINE TWIST". 36" barrels, bores of about 0.67". Metal parts have a smooth untouched patina overall with original twist finish mixing on the barrels. Metal parts are nicely engraved with inlaid metal bands in the barrel breech. Stock is checkered in the wrist and shows honest wear and use overall with minor handling marks and a small crack in the wood under each hammer, possibly from spring stress. Nipples are replacements. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
