RARE, C1870 French St Etienne Victorian Gentleman’s Self Defence & Poacher’s 16 Bore Breech Loading Pinfire Walking Stick Shotgun. Sn 12472 - 12472
Victorian Gentlemen often carried concealed firearms to protect themselves. Also Victorian Poachers faced heavy penalties if caught in the act of taking game illegally and went to great lengths to conceal their activity. This is an original pinfire walking stick shotgun made in the Victorian era, C1870 & no doubt used either by a Victorian Gentleman for self defence or by Poachers. The steel barrel of the 'walking stick' is an unusually large 16 Bore encased in a varnished brown cane. The cane has a stable secure 7” crack in the top section near to the throat due to drying out with age rather that vibration from shooting. The cane has brass ferrules at the throat and tip. The weapon is breech loading. A thumb operated steel block located in the steel neck of the handle near to its polished horn grip, lifts to allow the breech cover to be pulled back and a pinfire cartridge to be inserted into the breech. The weapon is cocked by pulling a steel ring fitted to the hammer which is inlaid into the back of the handle. The ring is fitted with a contemporary brass fob in the form of a knotted cord. Cocking the weapon causes an inlaid trigger to drop from the underside of the frame ready for firing. The top of the handle frame is holed to release detonation gases. The steel neck of the handle has a small manufacturer’s mark ‘St Etienne’ (France). The muzzle of the barrel has its original removable wood end cap which plugs the muzzle and allows it to be used as & gives it the appearance of, a harmless walking stick. The 'walking stick' with end cap inserted, including handle, measures 33 ½” overall length. The cocking and firing actions work perfectly (NB as with all antique firearms, to avoid damage to the action the weapon should not be frequently cocked and dry fired). Price for this rare antique shotgun walking stick includes UK delivery. NB As an antique pinfire weapon, no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 12472
