This nice-looking Maynard comes with both its .36 caliber rifle barrel and 20-gauge shotgun barrel, both 26-inches long, covered with lots of original blue finish and both numbered 13211 to match the serial number on the triggerguard tang. The frame shows muted, but visible case color and the screws show good blue with only the lockplate and lever screws showing wear to the slots. The Mass Arms Company stamp on the right frame is crisp as is the four-line Edward Maynard/ Patentee stamp with 1851 and 1859 dates on the left. The folding tang sight is in place on the wrist. Both upper and lower tangs show very good blue, usually the first to go from handling, as does the buttplate.

Both barrels have full coverage of thin blue with some light freckling and a few small brown spots showing. The shotgun barrel has the pin front sight in place. The rifle barrel has its V-notched rear block sight and blade front sight. The wood to metal fit is tight. The stock shows scattered small handling marks and dings. There is slight bit of chattering at the upper rear of the right butt near the buttplate, but overall the wood has very good color and edges, and the gun shows very, very nicely.

Maynard is best known among Civil War collectors for military carbines, but the company produced a wide array of sporting arms with lots of variation in caliber and grade. This is a very nice early percussion example and scarce with both barrels identically numbered to each other and the stock assembly. We include with this a modern Moose company .36 Cal. Maynard bullet mold and some empty cartridge cases.   [sr] [ph:L]
