#556- Blanket gun

You are looking at a cut down North West gun, cut down in the traditional Plains Indian fashion to hide beneath a blanket. Actually, they were used from horseback as a close in hunting and fighting weapon and served their purpose admirably, as well as any Dragoon pistol. The excellent quality parts come from NorthStarWest, including the 16 inch long 20 gauge barrel and the fat sparking flintlock. All the traditional English London markings are on the barrel and lock, including the sitting fox. The walnut stock has good figure in it. It has a traditional oil finish plastered with tacks and wrist strap. The barrel has been blued just like the originals were, with the lock and trigger guard bright, also like the originals.

American indians liked their art asymmetrical. No two sides will look the same. Thus the circle in tacks on one side of the grip and the Iraqouis cross on the other.
