** This has been alternatively identified as a Mouse Killer, 1862 Percussion trap gun,  made in USA and it seems that may be correct.  While this is an original or very early copy, there are several reproduction versions available in the USA. This video shows one of those in use.      Black Powder Mouse Gun  **

Located in Solihull and can be posted for a delivery fee of £15.

Sets and fires perfectly as this video demonstrates.
