    .yes a friend just gave me a very old 16,gauge double barrel
    the patch box is built in the bottom of the butt-plate,and under
    the lid,is the name J.WOURNEL..i think??it has a steel ram-rod
    it as a few proof marks under the breech part of the barrel
    such as a number 34 in a oval circle,ad what apears to be two
    strands of wheat crossing each other,as a proof mark,
    the number 16,capital G is stamped several places,like under
    the trigger gaurd,the gaurd and every thing else is old steel
    trim,with a floral desighn,back in the day it was probaly a
    $75.00 buck gun,this shot gun is a cap-lock and very old...
