webassets/Flask.jpg

   This Flask's twin was featured on page 70 of the 2007 Winter issue of "The Double Gun".  It was one of the accessories for a gun made by "Parker, Field & Sons, Makers to her Majesty, 233 Holborn, London."  This dates the Muzzleloader Gun to the period from 1841 to 1876.  The gun's bore measured .935", making it a full-sized 6 bore.  The lead balls were 92 caliber and weighed 1125 grams when cast from 20:1 lead/tin alloy.  This is a serious projectile!
