Have a foot in both camps have a replacement trigger guard made with a profile to suit the gun so you can have the gun either way with its history unchanged.

If it were my gun, I would remove it. As has been said more eloquently than I can say.....It takes away from the looks of a lovely gun.

If it was a glow worm sight would you think twice about taking it off? To me this after market addition is just as much out of place as one of those sight would be. Remove it and forget about it. So unless you like the addition remove it and at least restore the good lines that gun was born with. Damn thing looks like a dangling participle and we all know you should never have one of those.

I bought a very early Browning Superposed with two triggers which some trap shooter had added a Morgan adjustable recoil pad. Function, but looked like Hell. Off it came and I added a leather covered pad. Looks much nicer now. That addition bothers you so get rid of it. I rather see a scar from its removal than the wart it is on the gun. If possible remove it and any trace that it ever existed.

Part of the gun now. Unless it bothers your shooting I'd leave it if it were mine. JMHO...Geo

Is that trigger guard nickel plated? I have a Bayard hammer gun with a false under lever, but much nicer an appendage than yours.

Yes, the trigger guard, trigger plate, and buttplate are all nickel plated and appear totally original with the engraving still very sharp. Both the trigger guard and top tang are very long as often found on early breechloaders and muzzle loaders.

Update: well, after commiserating and considering the opinions offered here, I did the dastardly deed today. Considering everything I think it came out as well as possible and sure has better lines. Plugged the holes with drill rod and aged it all a bit with acid.

Hey Joe

Good riddance to the Snidely Whiplash appendage.

It would not bug me either way....meaning hunting or the looks.I would not waste the time or the money.
Just shoot it.....if you don't like it I might have a soft spot in my heart to help you get some of your money out of it...Just curious how is it choked????
