Description:

Patrick Smith of Buffalo, New York, was a gunmaker and retailer c. 1835-1881. His shop produced a wide variety of muzzleloading firearms. This combination gun has a rifled upper barrel and smoothbore lower barrel. It is fitted with a modern blade front sight, rear sight dovetail filler block, tang mounted 20th century replacement Lyman peep sight, marked "P. SMITH BUFFALO N-Y- 58" on top at the breech, a pair of back action locks with border engraving, dual triggers, border engraved German silver furniture, and checkered buttstock with some nice figure.

Rating Definition:

Very good with mottled gray and brown patina on the iron, some mild pitting, aged patina on the furniture, and mild overall wear. The stock is good and has a chip at the toe, some cracks and repairs, distinct checkering, some minor dings and scratches, and attractive figure. Mechanically fine.
