"Perkins", probably George Perkoins listed as gun maker at 9 Lancaster Street, London 1857-1861, as found in the book recently published "CONFEDERATE SOUTHERN AGENT MARKED SSHOTGUNS" . The English walnut stock is finely hand checkered and the checkering is still defined and sharp , with a fine stress/age crack. from the top tang forward to the lock edge as seen in photo of the right side. but this may have been repaired long ago, and is now solid. Comes with a hardwood ram-rod with a brass tip..Overall a very nice gun for display or re-enact ment. Shipping may be higher than stated as shippers raise their prices twice year without notice! When buying a gun always have it examined by a competent gunsmith before shooting. To buy a gun from me you must get a direct email for me, with details, and shipping cost. We don’t have a web site .I prefer money orders or a check. Item ships when funds come in. If you can only pay with a card let me know. I try to keep guns affordable, which means I make less money than most dealers. You won’t get altitude sickness, or nose bleed, with my prices! I consistently have the best selection of older guns If you attempt to buy, you must still contact us for details . Best to email to buy. Sometimes a local person can stop buy and purchase before the gun is removed. Sometimes not home to get calls. Some guns are required shipment to a gun dealer near you for a transfer to you when it arrives. Otherwise many older or black powder guns ship to your door. With the widest selection of older guns at great prices, We don’t have a store, and sell on the internet only. I’m easy to get along with. Thank You.
