This particular gun was used in a watermelon patch down in Macon, Georgia around the 1860s. This gun is mounted to a cast-iron frame that contains clock springs. There are four locking lugs, which also serve as triggers, on the top of this firearm. Designed to deter thieves, a cord would be affixed to each locking lug and stretched out across the melon patch. If someone tripped the cord, the gun would turn and shoot in that direction.
