Description
Unknown - 16 Gauge - Break Barrel - Pinfire (Lefaucheux) - Pen fire black powder double barrel, - 16 ga
Poor - 1880 - Not deactivated

Dear reader,
Hereby an antique pin fire double barrel 16 gauge. Never shot with it because it is, well, antiques, and black powder.
So in spite of that you have to make the shells yourself, which you do not just do.
There is always a chance for an old weapon to explode in your face.
That's why I had it hang on the fireplace as a decoration.
Can be taken apart into two pieces, which is very simple.
Only some rust inside but you can surely clean that.

It can be legally sold, provided you are 18 years of age and older.

With kind regards, S.Schuinder.
