Description

    DOUBLE-BARREL .12 GAUGE STAGECOACH GUN - Serial #1201. Barrels shortened to 19". Manufactured under G.H. Fox patent. "Am. Arms Co." marked lockplates on ornately engraved frame and trigger guard. Barrel rib marked "American Arms Co., Boston." This Fox patent, circa 1870's, covers a relative unique rotation of the barrels to swivel out to the right by pushing a level located on the front portion of the top tang. Bag style, checkered pistol grip with iron shotgun-style butt plate. Left side of stock stamped with two concentric ovals "Wells Fargo & Co. Express - Bonded." A nice example of a coach gun that could have been used by one of America's most noteworthy express companies.

    Condition:
    All metal surfaces and wood exhibit a pleasing well-used patina. However, this particular Wells Fargo-style stamp is not known in any available reference material.
