30347- NEW ENGLAND STYLE UNDER-HAMMER PERCUSSION BOOT PISTOL SIGNED FAERBER BREMEN CIRCA 1850. 10” o/a with 6” part octagon part round .34 cal. rifled barrel signed “FAEBER BREMEN”.

Grip with the original worn finish. Working order and dark bore with rifling still visible. We have no record of this maker who may be a German making guns in this New England style. A half stock percussion sporting rifle of American form with German style engraving similarly signed is known.
