    ~ Circa 1860 Possible George Gibbs Ltd Single Barrelled Percussion Lock Shotgun ~


    This is a very interesting and unique piece. It appears to be a custom made civilian hunting shotgun with a 12 bore octagonal barrel. The stock is a stained hardwood with a cross hatched pattern on the pistol grip and furniture. The fittings are all brass. Some of the screws aren’t flush with the wood. The nipple on the lock is a more recent replacement.

    It isn’t clearly marked but the overall impression is that this is a Gibbs Percussion Lock Single Barreled Shotgun made by George Gibbs Ltd of Bristol with this model being made in 1865 onwards, with the lack of markings and the recent polishing that’s the closest estimate we can make.

    The markings we have are ‘ENFIELD 88’, what looks like a capital K with a 93 underneath and what looks to be the remnants of a crown insignia on the lock plate.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The shotgun has a 12 gauge barrel.

    The overall length of the shotgun is 49 inches (125 cm).

    The barrel length is 33 inches (84 cm).

    The length of the furniture from the stock is 25 inches (64 cm).

    The butt plate from top to bottom is 5.5 inches (14 cm).

    The rifle weighs 3 Kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The condition is good for its age, it has had recent polishing.

    The nipple of the lock has been replaced by a more modern piece.

    The ramrod is slightly loose and its brass fitting isn’t flush.

    The wood has some minor scuffs.

    The marks on the barrel and lock plate are unclear.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £20 or it can be collected from our shop.
