1857 Tabatiere Breech-loading Shotgun
Frequently known as “Zulu”.
Own the original! This is a legitimate antique and not a reproduction.


USE ONLY "BLACK POWDER" Brass Shells or Paper Shells"!
NEVER USE MODERN SMOKELESS POWDER OR SHELLS...NEVER!!


Here we present a Tabatiere Breech-loading Shotgun, frequently known as “Zulu”. The origin of this shotgun is an interesting one. Originally, this was an 1857 French musket. Soon after they converted these muzzleloaders to breech-loaders, using the Snider system, so that they became known as the System 1867. They were used in the Franco-Prussian War in which the French were defeated. By the end of the war, the French decided that the converted muskets were unacceptable and once again updated their arsenals, this time with the 1874 Gras. Being that there was no military use for these surplus guns as they were, a Belgian gunmaker, Bertrand & Fils, had the idea to convert these (for a second time) into shotguns.

The name “Zulu” was probably inspired by the British Colonial Zula War of 1879, around the time period where sales of these guns was at its highest. Imports to the United States were good throughout the end of the 19th Century, until domestic production of single shot shotguns caught up with competitive options. Companies like E.C. Meacham in St. Louis and Sears & Roebuck in Chicago both sold these and marketed them as “an admirable Boy's or Farmer's Gun, and fills a long-felt want for a good breechloader at a moderate price. 12 gauge, 7 1/2 pounds, 33 inch. Uses regular brass or paper shells.” This as the Western portion of the United States was still quite unsettled and need for affordable workhorse firearms was high.

This one is marked “Hunter” on the top of the barrel. The stock is highly figured flame walnut and only has 2 small blemishes at the rear of the receiver and at the forearm wedge pin. See detailed pictures for a close look.

The overall condition is extremely good. The blued parts are clean, with some light discoloration The markings are clear. The action is excellent.
  • Barrel is 33 inches.
  • 12ga

Tingle Target Rifle .45cal Empty Tingle Target Rifle .45cal

Selling a beautiful Tingle Target Rifle ( Hawken Style ) .45cal!
No. 614 - This is a very early model from Tingle that dates back to the early 1960's.


This Rifle is equipped with a 32" Douglas barrel that measures 32" long and is 15/16" across the flats. This barrel has a 1:52 twist with between .012 - .013" rifling.

Length of pull: 14 1/2"

Lacquered American walnut stock with concave cheek piece, brass trim and a factory poured Pewter nose cap. Overall length is 48" - 8lbs 11oz ( On my scale )

Lock and triggers works perfectly. The lock is Tingles own design, and uses a coil main spring and double set triggers with NO fly ( Pull the rear trigger first to set ) Many companies such as Lyman and TC copied this design later on.

This rifle actually uses a removable breech plug! And yes, I've taken it out easily with a simple ratchet. Be sure to lube prior to use! Drum clean out screw is also free and easily removed.

This rifle originally had a hawken style adjustable rear sight similar to what we'd find on original hawken rifles ( Note the 2 screws on the barrel flat ) The previous owner didn't like the factory sight, and opted to have a gunsmith cut a dovetail and install the more user friendly rear sight.

On the lock side, at the toe of the butt plate, theres a tiny crack. This crack does not go all the way through to the other side! It looks like they had the angle of the screw at a steeper angle and cracked the wood due to the thin area. They re-centered it and everything feels solid.

This is a factory built rifle, not a kit gun.

Bluing i'd say is at least 85%. Some very minor scratches here and there on the barrel. Nothing deep!

A solid looking rifle inside and out!

Traditions Springfield Classic .50cal with 1:20 twist.


Hammer aligns center with the hammer, bore is super clean.

This pistol was made in very small numbers due to the costly laminated stock.

This is pretty much your trapper, except it has a user friendly single trigger, laminated stock and better sights.

Barrel length is 9 3/4" and 7/8" across the flats.

The bore is clean and crisp, a few handling Mark's on the rear/side of the stock as you'll see. Bluing is extremely clean.

This bad boy is ready to go!

This pistol was not shot much at all.
