Unusual American made single barrel cartridge shotgun by F.R.BUCKLIN/E TILTON, N.H. as marked on the barrel. This is a maker that we have not observed before, which bears some similarity to the William Lawrence shotguns made in Laconia, NH. 30-1/4" barrel, 12 gauge. Metal parts are mostly a brown patina with some scattered spots of light pitting. Checkered forearm and wrist with distinctively shaped forearm tip and iron pistol grip cap. Overall stock shows average wear and use with a couple moderate bruises. Mechanically good except extractor does not emerge, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
