SOLD

An absolutely massive 74" long Newfoundland sealing gun with very early dog-lock mechanism. 18th or early 19th century. These guns were never intended to have a trigger guard for two reasons -- the tremendous kick the gun had when fired could easily break your hand or wrist, and also the Newfoundlanders often wore mittens while using these weapons, rendering a trigger guard problematic. 

Dimensions: 74"
