    Gentleman’s Self Defence & Poachers' Day’s Patent .36” Bore Muzzle Loading Percu Gentleman’s Self Defence & Poachers' Day’s Patent .36” Bore Muzzle Loading Percu .36" Muzzel Loader
    RARE, C1870 Victorian Gentleman’s Self Defence & Poachers' Day’s Patent .36” Bore Muzzle Loading Percussion Under hammer Walking Stick Shotgun With Screw Off Damascus Barrel. Sn 12561 - 12561 Victorian Gentlemen often carried concealed firearms to protect themselves. Also Victorian Poachers faced heavy penalties if caught in the act of taking game illegally and went to great lengths to conceal their activity. This is an original percussion walking stick shotgun made in the Victorian era, C1870 & no doubt used either by a Victorian Gentleman for self defence or by Poachers. The weapon is muzzle loading. The 'walking stick' has a damascus steel, smooth bore, 22” screw off barrel which is .36" bore. The bore has some staining but no pitting or rust. The barrel has a percussion cap nipple at the breach end. After loading the barrel with black powder, shot and wadding a percussion cap is attached to the nipple. The underside of the steel section of the ‘handle’ has a concealed sprung trigger and bar hammer. The barrel and handle have small vent holes to allow the escape of detonation gases. The muzzle of the barrel has a small blade fore sight. The breech section of the weapon has a copper shield with partially visible ‘Day’s Patent detail (illustrated). The brass grip of the handle section has a ribbed underside and is decorated with geometric designs. The 'walking stick' measures 29” overall length. The cocking and firing actions work perfectly (NB as with all antique firearms, to avoid damage to the action the weapon should not be frequently cocked and dry fired). Price for this rare antique shotgun walking stick includes UK delivery. NB As an antique percussion weapon, no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 12561 £675.00
