Please click the image for a larger version
Massive English single barrel percussion "punt gun" by William Lee. 0.88" bore, 48" barrel, about 64-1/2" overall. Weighs just over 11 pounds. Nicely engraved with a beautiful untouched appearance overall and striped damascus finish on the barrel. Metal parts have an untouched brown patina and are virtually free of pitting. Stock is nicely checkered in the wrist and shows light wear and use overall with a couple moderate handling marks present in the butt and opposite the lock, small crack in front of the lock, otherwise has a lovely grain and untouched patina. Horn forearm cap has a few age cracks. Ramrod is 37" long with ball puller on end, a little short for the barrel, but displays well. From the JM Davis Arms and Historical Museum. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
