    NEW ENGLAND-STYLE FOWLER. Lockplate with maker's mark "ORR" and dated 1743. Engraved brass mountings. Overall length of 64¾". Barrel appears to be rifled, but rifling extends only one-inch into the bore. Barrel measures 49¾ " and is part round/part octagon, with top flat of rear octagon portion extending full length to the muzzle. Cherry wood stock. There is a provision for a sling swivel at the front of the triggerguard bow, but the swivel is not present. Iron ramrod.

    Condition: Stock shows areas of restoration. The front 31" have been replaced with new wood, and the areas forward of and above the lock have repairs. Cracks are present at the rear of the sideplate and cracks from drying extend forward from the buttplate. Barrel has been cleaned but retains a pleasant gray-brown color. Brass mountings are a medium mustard patina. Lock has been cleaned and shows a gray color with some rust and staining. The touch hole has been relined and the gun is possibly a reconversion. The lock does not function.
