    Belgium made "Cape Gun"...circa at the earliest the mid to late 1840's - to around 1900.
    ( Belgium proofs on the underside of the barrels , near the breech )
    12 gauge smooth bore barrel with a .44 caliber rifled barrel.
    Both barrels ( 30 inch ) , hooked breech , are clean with no pits , in good shape and the rifling is fast twist , set up for conicals.
    The barrels are Damascus...but don't let that scare you , as I have shot and hunted with this gun.
    One minor ding in the Shotgun barrel...but it is minor and the barrels are tight with no splits ...

    The barrels , triggers ( rifle has a "set" trigger ) , trigger plate , butt plate , trigger guard , stock and sights are all original ...
    The locks are modern replacements , made by Pedersoli...Modern nipples as well...
    The stock has been cleaned and re-oiled , no major dents or cracks...
    Ramrod was made by me ...
    Load :
    12 gauge...
    65 grains of 2F , over powder card , cushion wad , shot , overshot card...
    .44 rifle...
    45 grains of 2F , greased .429 all lead bullet ( .44 Special / .44 Magnum works well ) ....
    $900.00 O.B.O or Trade...
    ( Flexible on price / trade )

    Trade items wanted :
    Upper end Flintlock rifle...or Northwest Tradegun...
    ( No CVA , Lyman or Thompson Center , etc.. )
    Colt 2nd generation 1851 Navy or Colt 2nd generation 1860 Army...
    English made Parker Hale 2 Band Rifle...
    ( Not a newer Italian made one )
    Colt 2nd Generation 1861 Rifled Musket...
    **Or Perhaps**
    1903 Springfield Rifle ( 03A3 as well )
    Mauser Military or Sporter rifle or Carbine in 7mm
    Pre-64 Winchester model 94 Rifle ( Not a carbine )
    Remington ( or Uberti ) Rolling Block rifle or Carbine in .30-30 or 7mm

    I wish guns could talk. I’d listen to their stories for years...
