I have recently acquired this antique and was wondering if anyone might have any info on it. There is no proof marks on it. Only thing that can be made out is 1868 and that is on the receiver just under the barrels. Thank you.

Hard to tell from the photos, but very similar to guns made by Blunt & Syms of New York City... If not, then it could possibly be one of the Ethan Allen guns (Allen & Thurber, Allen & Wheelock, etc)

IMO, it's not an Ethan Allen, Allen & Thurber or an Allen & Wheelock design - which had tubular frames that extended much further aft of the hammers than your gun.

To wit:


IMO, the frame of your gun looks a lot like an N.R. Davis gun
