View all Guns from Grand Junction, CO
Joseph Manton (1766-1835) was a much celebrated British gunsmith who was to revolutionise sport shooting, vastly improve the quality of weapons and father the modern artillery shell. Joseph was also a keen sports shooter in his own right and had a keen interest in guns from an early age. The firearms of his day were sluggish, inaccurate and poorly designed. Although major advances in the general rate of fire were to come after his death, Manton is oft credited with improving the quality of firearms in his time. This Manton shotgun is said to have come into the New England area sometime in the early to mid 1800’s. The name, David P. Prescott is heavily pressed into the wood of the inside fore arm and appears to have been there for some time. Could possibly be the original owner. Shotgun is missing the ramrod.
