European "Field Gun" Circa 1880 - 1890
Probably made in Germany, there are no identifying markings or serial numbers. Exposed hammers, I replaced the firing pins and return springs. Left barrel is a 16 Ga Damascus. I made up black powder #6 loads and round ball loads using full length brass. Right barrel is 11 x 51mm with excellent riflings, I shortened and resized 45-70 brass, cast an 11mm 375 grain bullet and use a compressed load of H4831, both barrels shoot remarkably well! Rear sight is a flip-up dovetail.
