These are a rare collectable for Cavalry related collectors or if you are a horse enthusiast they would look great on display. So get your nose bag on and buy these!

MHG566 FLINTLOCK TRAP GUN/CEMETERY GUN
Item # MHG566
This flintlock is English made with "G. Jones BIRM m" on the lockplate. It has a huge bore. 1-1/8". A very strange contraption that was used in the late 1700's into the early 1800's supposedly for use against poachers around their traps and also for grave robbers. The grave robbing part would work pretty good since once you dug down to the gun and tripped the wire you would get shot and fall in the hole. They would just have to cover it up again. The cond is actually VG. The flintlock parts all there. A bit sluggish and may need tuning. The frizzen and pan do move. The hammer and activation is a little sluggish but does work. If you are looking for the odd and bizarre this would fit the bill!!

MSG887 VERY INTERESTING SET GUN
Item # MSG887
Also frequently referred to as a"Cemetery Gun". Because surgeons and medical students could only legally dissect executed criminals or people who had donated their bodies to science, a trade in stolen corpses erupted. The cemetery gun was a dramatic way to discourage so-called "resurrection men." The gun would be mounted on a mechanism that allows it to spin freely. Cemetery keepers set up the weapon at the foot of a grave with three tripwires around the grave. A prospective grave-robber, stumbling over the tripwire in the dark, would trigger the weapon—much to his own demise.This one is well marked. The lock plate is marked with a "GR" and a Crown. Stock has the name "Marriott" branded into the bottom and the upper left side. The 2 halves of the stock are held together by riveted bindings. This is one of the best ones I have seen as they are usually in pretty tough shape. Definitely old and authentic and a very interesting and unique piece of early history.
