Please click the image for a larger version
Nice Maine made single barrel percussion shotgun marked on lock and barrel "J.M.LELAND AUGUSTA ME". British proofed barrel but obviously stocked in America. 35" fancy part octagon, part round barrel with .61" bore. Metal parts have a light to medium patina overall with some pitting in the barrel breech area. Stock has a couple minor diagonal cracks near the forearm tip and a break in the lock area that has not been repaired. There is also a small chip below the lock bolt at the triggerguard pin. Forearm tip is painted to simulate a horn or ebony tip on fancier imported arms. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
