Side by Side 10-Gauge Barrel Shotgun, Waterfowl Lockplate by Pedersoli In the early stages of the Civil War, many enlistees came to serve with their own primary hunting firearms, and in the South such guns were often double-barrel shotguns. Though largely ineffective in infantry battles due to limited range, shotguns were devastating and effective weapons when used by cavalry soldiers, skirmishers and behind-the-lines raiders. Double-barrel shotguns also offered versatility by allowing the use of buckshot, round balls, buck-and-ball loads or a mix of such loads between the two barrels. This beautiful version of muzzle loading side by side shotgun, which reproduces an original English model has been the indispensable friend of the traditional hunter for many years. The stock is made of walnut, the blued barrels are slightly choked and inside chromed. The locks are engraved with flying geese on the lockplates. The stock is from selected walnut, checkered, and the barrels are rust brown color. Barrel length 30". Weight 7.5 lbs.
