Z1055     African/Middle Eastern Blunderbuss Project Gun

Description: Here is a very interesting gun. This is a blunderbuss and I would suspect this one to be from Africa or the Middle East.

The barrel is full of silver inlay and some of it has come off of the barrel. The ramrod guides and the butt plate all have silver inlay as well. The stock is covered with bone inlay and small brass tacks. The original and hand forged iron trigger is still in place. The barrel is slightly out of round on the end. The stock has a very nice patina and there are a few cracks here and there. We typically don't carry items like this but it came in with several other guns from the same museum. If you like old guns this may be a good candidate for restoration.

Z220     Battlefield Pickup Relic French Mle 1886/93

Description: Here is a very nice WWI vintage French Lebel rifle that was picked up in France many moons ago. This piece was brought back and was part of a large group of excavated/pickup relics from France. It is in relic condition. It appears that the barrel is plugged and is probably the reason the gun was discarded. There is still a little bit of the stock remaining. You can clearly see the manufacture date of 1915 near the receiver. There was a little bit of green paint that was dropped on the end of the barrel but it would easily clean off. This would make an excellent gift for the WWI enthusiast or it may look even nicer hanging on your wall.
