Thanks it was on display at the 1897 Madison Square garden show and owned by DuBray for a time according to the Parker letter. I figured it needed to go hunting ducks to honor whose who enjoyed it for many years before I became the caretaker.

We enjoyed an excellent wild bird hunt in South Dakota this year, and it was my impression that they were more birds than in the past three or four years. We “laid eyes“ on at least 50 roosters a day, but struggled to get our limits as primarily a two-man team and skittish birds. I shot Several different guns, but continue to gravitate toward this 16 Bore Horton. My load of choice was RST 2 1/2 inch 1oz # 4. I wonder when they will load this shell again? My dog Lucy, has come down with leukemia at age 12 1/2 which slowed her down. I have a 1 1/2 year-old male who is eager, but still figuring things out. Lots of good memories from the prairie this year.

The family farm is going up for sale at the start of next year. I'm trying to get as many hunts in before all the oaks, creeks and ponds get bulldozed into cracker box houses

Not sure what I am seeing here.

Is that the top of a drilling or a side by side with a back sight.

And is that an opening or selector lever way over to the left?

It wouldn't be a cape gun (Buechsflinte), with two barrels and two hammers a selector is not required. It would be an underlever drilling.

I think its a drilling with the lever cocked over like that. Sorry about the family farm journeyman. Hunt the hell out of it while you can

I hope this isn’t regarded as cheating - my capturing and posting an image from the excellent Capandball YouTube Black Powder Partridge Shooting video I just enjoyed.

For the avoidance of doubt, not my guns, not my game and sadly not shot by me in Hungary.

The breechloader is a 12 bore drilling and the top lever pushed over to the left acts as a selector (as with journeyman’s?).

Well worth watching.

That is a gorgeous bar-in-wood MacNaughton, Tamid. Years ago I had a similar MacNaughton but it fell victim to downsizing my collection.
