This shot snake is an exact copy of an original from the 1800's period when Black Powder muzzleloader shotgunning was at its height. Made from our soft custom tanned cowhide leather with a latigo leather strap and brass buckle. The curved shape allows the snake to lay around your body and positions the spout exactly where it needs to be to charge your muzzle. I am only offering this with the English style Head with the rocker lever as the Irish style in my years of handleing does not hold up and eaisily breaks. The English head has two adjustments for volume of shot charge. Made to wear on the left side as the originals were.

Great piece. Cant wait to get it out on birds. Would be nice to have different spouts for smaller charges. Mine came with a 1 1/4 oz and 1 1/2oz measure.

The quality of materials and workmanship is excellent. One suggestion: since it is intended to be worn on the left, it seems it might be better to move the buckle closer to the back end of the snake opposite the spout.
