The historical Wilson Chief's Grade Trade Gun was first produced in the era of the 1740's.


It features a 6" round face lock engraved with a bow/arrows/quiver emblem behind the lock. The barrel is an octagon to round full taper barrel with 7.5 inch flats and double wedding bands. This gun comes with the "Caywood" interchangeable barrel system in 20, 24, 28 ga. smoothbore and .50, .54 and .58 caliber rifle barrel choices.  

The gun also features the very elegant French style stock architecture with a curving comb line, wrist and belly line. The butt plate has a stylized torch finial and the bow/arrows/quiver engraving matching the lock. With a brass serpent-style sideplate, brass high rib thimbles and screw-on trigger guard, this is an exceptionally nice and elegant early English trade gun.

re-enactors.  Simplicity and elegance in one fine gun!
