Guys, I need help on this! Don't think It's a Colt But my late Great Uncles widow has this old percussion/BP shotgun (you know the drill!)...that He bought about 10 years ago. I know exactly...(0) about these old things. Is there anything special about this one as it has...(0) markings without taking the dang thing apart? I haven't had the chance to take enough good pictures of it yet but will post later. It looks like its rammer has been replaced by a very old tapered BP stained Oak dowell of some sort?
Has typical twisted steel Damascus barrels that are very...very thin at the muzzle. In fact they're thin enough to break the skin on your fingers. Not a ton of pitting considering its age. Looks well taken care of for what it is!
Any thoughts? She wants to sell & I have NO Idea what to offer her!!!
