Double Barreled Percussion Shotgun - 10 gauge

Percussion Shotguns were a "transitional stage" from earlier smoothbore flintlock/caplock guns (such as Blunderbuss and Flintlock Fowler) and modern breech-loading shotguns. They became obsolete by the 1870's with the appearance of cartridge-feed breech-loading shotguns, but continued to be used by some hunters in some countries until about the middle of the 20th century.

Percussion Shotguns look similar to breech-loading shotguns with exposed hammers, but can be identified by the characteristic ramrod fixed under the barrel(s), necessary for loading.

Some rare breech-loading percussion shotguns (using paper cartridges, but still requiring separate-settable caps, like the Smith Carbine), howewer, can only be identified by careful examination.

The Percussion Shotgun and variants can be seen in the following films, television series, video games, and anime used by the following actors:
