Belgian Flintlock Trade Musket 20 Bore/gauge Muzzleloader

ShotgunsMuzzleloaderUsed£ 375

I think this was made originally as a percussion musket, but then converted to flintlock towards the end of the 19th century for use in the colonies as a trade musket, where percussion caps etc. were not readily available. The stock is well used, but there are no breakages or splits in the woodwork. It has a 24g smooth bore 40" barrel, again in good condition. The lock works as it should and produces a good spark.

The barrel has the classic Belgian proof mark on the top and a number of marks on the underside, shown in the pictures. All the parts including that spur trigger guard are stamped with the crown and R underneath. It has a metal ramrod, of the right size for muzzzle loading.
It's a very solid, sound gun, with some interesting history - a great wall piece.
(note its 24 bore not 20 bore - but it won't let you select 24 bore for the calibre)
Message me, or call me if you want more information.
Will post for £25
