Percussion Northwest Trade Bun by Barnett

.58 caliber. 30" pinned three-stage octagon to round barrel. SN: NSN. Moderately oxidized metal, iron and brass furniture, full-length hardwood stock. Enfield style percussion lock marked "BARNETT/LONDON/1888" in three lines forward of the hammer, with the seated "{Tombstone-Fox}/EB" mark of the Hudson's Bay Company at the tail. Breech with London commercial proof marks and a "24" gauge mark indicating .58 caliber. Typical trade gun features include the brass three-screw serpent side plate, five screw flat brass buttplate, oversized iron triggerguard and raised carved aprons at the tang and tails of the lock mortise and counterpane. Two corrugated brass pipes hold an old brass tipped wood ramrod. A neat example of a very late production percussion muzzleloading trade gun.
