These guns are also called wall/rampart guns. These massive guns essentially filled a gap between rifles/muskets and artillery. These guns are quite rare today, especially in the public market. The barrel has London commercial proofs and a rounded front sight blade. The lock has the East India Company's rampant lion trademark and double border line engraving. The brass furniture also has border engraving, and "No 4" is inscribed on the trigger guard bow. The stock has a hole for a yoke.

Rating Definition:

Good with mottled gray patina and scattered light pitting on the barrel and lock, aged patina on the brass, hairline cracks and some repairs on the stock, chipping at the breech, and mild overall wear. Mechanically fine.
