William Ling (born 1793) was an English London based gunsmith recorded at a number of London addresses between 1820 and 1863 (see pages 180 & 178 of British Gunmakers Vol 1 by Brown). This is a massive percussion wildfowling gun made C1850 signed by Leech & W. Ling. This size of gun (5 feet 1inch overall length) were lay on riverbanks and sand dunes to support the heavy weight of the gun when hunting wild fowl or mounted on punts. It is 8 bore and has a 43 ½” round steel barrel. Its bore has light staining consistent with age and use. It has walnut stock with chequered wrist & polished horn fore stock cap. The wood has just light bumps and bruises consistent with age and use and is impressed ‘W.Ling’ indicating that the stock was supplied by the gunmaker William Ling. The wood has heavy brass mounts and heavy brass butt plate. The action plate and barrel block are signed ‘Leech’ (most likely William John Leech) It has a heavy steel Dolphin hammer. The barrel has a small brass bead foresight. The piece is complete with its original wood ramrod with brass end cap. Its cocking & firing actions work perfectly.
