    SPANISH DOUBLE BARREL PERCUSSION 'MIQUELET' LOCK SHOTGUN CIRCA early 1800's - 18" barrels in .12 gauge. Top barrel rib engraved in large block letters "POR FRUTO BARRENECHEA". Left barrel engraved "FABRICADO". Right lock plate engraved "FRUTO". This weapon is of probable Spanish manufacture. Both hammers are decorated in a serpentine configuration. All hardware, with the exception of the wedge escutcheon and ramrod thimble, are of iron and modestly engraved. Right lock is functional but left lock will not hold on full cock. Wedge escutcheons and ramrod thimble are silver. Fitted with an old sling. Ramrod looks to be original although shortened to suit barrels.

    Condition: Barrel shortened from original to length noted. All metal surfaces are dark grey to near black with age. Wood stock shows numerous handling abrasions but is fundamentally sound. Basically, a important colonial old west shotgun with great wear, age and patina.
