H. Koon Snake Charmer - .410

Specifications

(1980 (?) - ????)

  • Type: Shotgun
  • Caliber: .410
  • Capacity: Single-shot


Starting around 1980, Texan H. (Homer) Koon marketed a small .410 shotgun under the name “Snake Charmer”. It’s unique all stainless steel design was characterized by a light weight (about 3 lbs) and had a short stock with storage for four shells, making it more suitable for one handed operation than shooting from the shoulder.

A few years later, the design was modified with the addition of a manual safety switch which blocked the hammer when engaged. The improved shotgun was re-named the “Snake Charmer II” and manufactured by Sporting Arms Manufacturing Inc, in Littlefield, Texas.

The design was sold and/or obtained by V.B. E. Inc. and manufacturing moved to Clay Center, Kansas. V.B.E Inc. is a subsidiary of the French arms company Verny-Carron. Current versions are reportedly made in Turkey for Verny-Carron and imported into the U.S. by Kebco LLC in Hanover, PA.
