Woodland Indian Standing Firing, No.1

From its beginning in 1670, the Hudson’s Bay Company traded guns to the Indians, primarily sourced from factories in Birmingham and London, England. By the early 1800s, the trading companies had established rigid requirements for these guns. The full-stocked, smooth bore trade guns varied little in shape and style, but underwent changes in barrel lengths. By the late 1820s, the 30 inch barrel had become popular. The overall length of a standard Northwest gun with a 30 inch barrel was 45.5 inches. A distinctive feature of these guns was the dragon or serpent shaped side plate. Most Indians would not trade for a gun that did not have the serpent plate. The earliest record of the Hudson’s Bay gun with its distinctive dragon ornament is dated 1805.
