J. Ernst Fielder was active in Ulm around 1760 per "Der Neue Stockel." This combination gun has an octagonal barrel with seven-groove rifling and blade and notch sights and a part octagon, part round barrel with a smoothbore and silver spider blade front sight. Both barrels are signed "J. ERNST FIELDER IN ULM" in silver inlay with some accents. The various components have some simple engraving. The gun is equipped with adjustable double set triggers. The forend panels have some light carving, and the buttstock has a checkered wrist and large cheekpiece.
Fine as reconverted to flintlock configuration with aged patina on the silver, traces of finish blended with gray patina, aged patina on the brass, and general mild overall wear. The refinished wood is also fine and has some cracks and repairs, legible but worn checkering and carving, and minor dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
