I need help Identifing my gun

Recommended Posts

I just got double barrel gun from my great aunt that has no records of any sort. It is a muzzle loading gun and has a double trigger. the only writing i could find on it was on the side right above the triggers and all it says is Field. and for the life of me i can't find anything on a field gun. if someone could help me it would be greatly appreciated.

Wow, this is a tough one. I know very little about blackpowder firearms, so I don't think I'll be of much help. I'll look around, and see what I can find.

Is it a smoothbore or is it rifled?

Try and measure the bore if you can.

It looks like a 'double barrel percussion cap muzzleloader'. The "Field" probably just refers to the model and not a manufacturer. There probably are more obscure markings under the barrel.

If there is anyone who could identify it, it would be Leroy Merz http://www.merzantique.com/index.html

Try contacting him.
