NICE FRENCH 19TH CENTURY PINFIRE SHOTGUN by GAUVAIN in PARIS:
In very good original untouched condition. 45 ¼ inch overall length. 29 3/8th inch barrels. 12 gauge caliber. Very good metal with barrels retaining a good amount of the somewhat faded original finish. Very good maker’s markings in Paris on the barrel’s rib. Superb engraved décor on lockplates, frame, trigger guard, buttplate, and hammers. Excellent action and fine bores. Very good walnut stock showing some normal handling marks. A very attractive French shotgun!
