Nota de aplicación

Most common type of European hunting rifle from the late 17th to the mid-19th century, typically with a short octagonal barrel of large bore, a heavy stock, and brass fittings. Originally fitted with flintlocks, after 1820 they commonly were fitted with percussion locks. They were popular in the American colonies until superseded by American long rifles after the Revolution.
