ENGLISH FLINTLOCK COACHING BRASS BARRELLED BLUNDERBUSS WITH SPRING BAYONET.
A late 18th early 19th century coaching Blunderbuss generally nice condition, overall length 78cm, wood stock good, very small areas of repair to the stock just below the barrel area, the major part of the stock all good and undamaged. Slight discoloration to the wood in the area where the pins hold the barrel in place. All of the fittings, which include the engraved floriated trigger guard, butt stock, rammer pipes all matching. Steel sprung loaded bayonet, when the holding catch is released the bayonet only lifts a matter of 5cm, which indicates that the sprung loaded system needs attention. The Flintlock is in excellent working order, minor corrosion to the very left hand point of the lock. The maker ‘Smith’ is clear to the flat section.
