  • Indian Trade Fusil by Parker, Field & Co. Made for the Hudson’s Bay Company. The overall length is 52”. The octagon to round barrel with two “wedding bands” is 36 1/2″ indicating this to be a Chief’s pattern gun. The bore is approximately .60 caliber . Flintlock is marked in curved letters “Parker Field” over a straight line and “Co / 1880” over London in a curve. The center of the lock has the tombstone fox/ EB stamp. Barrel top-flat also has the tombstone fox/ EB stamp. The left-flat has the London proof mark of a crown over “GP” followed by “24” (bore size) followed by a crown over “V” proof. The heavy brass butt plate is secured by five screws. The iron trigger guard is mounted on the surface of the stock. There are multi-grooved ramrod thimbles. There are three “tears” behind the lock plate, tang, and side plate. The side plate is in the form of a dragon, which originated on early colonial fowlers. Parker, Field and Company made trade guns for Hudson’s Bay Company from 1841 to at least 1880.  Whilst all the gun is original it is in need of some restoration work. the barrel bore is corroded, and barrel and lock do have some surface corrosion. The lock itself needs to be repaired internally. The stock itself is remarkably good condition as is the brass buttplate.
