Item Description
Mostly brass construction with steel pins and a steel hook with a large wood screw attached to a pintle on the bottom. The left side is marked "Taylor Fur Getter/F.C. Taylor Fur Co. St. Louis, MO." and the right side marked "Patí June 2, 1914/Other Pats Pending" This device was designed for and used by trappers to kill fur-bearing animals in abstentia. The gun was screwed into a log, tree or fence post, and a piece of bait was attached to the hook in front of the muzzle. The barrel was then loaded and cocked. When an animal tugged on the bait, the weapon discharged, killing the animal. CONDITION: Complete and original, with the brass showing a beautiful age patina (it has never been buffed or otherwise touched). The steel parts are in good condition and the bore is bright and shiny. The serial number 2638 appears on the bottom of the receiver and barrel. This is as fine a trap gun. FFL required.
