SOLD SOLD (08/02) **RARE**MASSIVE**QUALITY MAKERS**OUTSTANDING BORE**1804-1819 Barber & Boaler Newark 10 Bore Flintlock Muzzle Loading Single Barrel ‘Bustard’ Shotgun With Walnut Stock & Ramrod. Sn 21409 - 21409
The Great Bustard is the world's heaviest flying bird, but in England it had been shot to near extinction by the early1830s, where the male at that time had a wingspan of 7-9 feet and could exceed 40lbs. Bustards were always extremely rare and regarded as excellent eating ( a modern image of a Great Bustard in flight is illustrated in image 1) . Because they flew singly and very high, a few special long barrelled guns were built from the late 18th century dedicated to shooting these extraordinary birds, generally of 10 or 12 bore - to keep them as light as possible, given the need for a very long barrel. By comparison the substantial 6 and 8 bore fowlers of the time, used for goose and other wildfowl, had much shorter, heavier barrels. Bustard guns are consequently extremely unusual and are all single barrelled flintlocks. The long barrel promoted a more efficient powder burn and a tight shot pattern before choke had been invented. The shooter needed to be highly skilled. This example, which has a 53inch barrel and is 70 inches overall, yet weighs only 11lbs, was made by Barber and Boaler between 1804 - when Isaac Barber went into partnership with Joseph Boaler - and 1819, when their association ceased. They were renowned for specialising in high quality pieces, particularly duelling pistols. This gun, which would by definition seldom have been fired, is in fine condition with an oustanding bore. The barrel is of octagonal to sixteen sided to round construction with the top flat signed "BARBER & BOALER, NEWARK". It has a bead foresight and a broad sighting groove. The step tailed bevel edged lock signed "BARBER" has a roller frizzen with a semi-rainproof pan and a swan necked cock. The figured walnut half stock is dot and chequered at the wrist, with iron furniture, an acorn filial and a horn-tipped ramrod. It has an excellent walnut stock with chequered wrist & polished horn fore stock cap. The stock has a steel butt plate with extended tang. The piece is complete with its original ebonised wood ramrod with polished horn end cap. Its cocking & firing actions work crisply. The price for this massive rare to find Bustard gun includes UK delivery.
