Cape Guns for Space 1889

Page history last edited by Michael 3 years, 9 months ago

back to the Index, or to The Queen's Consort

 

     Cape guns are popular in southern Africa, where a wide variety of game might be encountered. They are a variety of "combination gun", with two side-by-side barrels -- one shotgun, one rifle. Separate triggers fire the barrels; some may have a set trigger for the rifle barrel, for extra accuracy. Almost every combination of calibers and gauges have been made -- even before cartridge guns were in use -- but the most common varieties currently produced are:

 

  • .303" rifle barrel (carbine length), alongside a 12 gauge shotgun barrel. Wt:  9 lbs  Price:  £6

  • "long hunting rifle" barrel, alongside a 12 gauge shotgun; heavier and a bit more expensive. Wt:  10 lbs Price:  £8.

 

     We're simplifying a complicated field here, since the Space:  1889 system doesn't have a large range of calibers and gauges described in detail.
