W. Richards, as marked on locks, sidelever English double barrel damascus shotgun. 30" barrels marked on rib "LAMINATED STEEL". Heavy construction, 10 gauge bores. Metal parts have a good medium patina overall with minimal scattered rust and attractive twist pattern on barrels. Buttstock is good, checkered in wrist, showing numerous handling marks and scratches to the varnished finish, with an absent inlay in the belly of the butt. Forearm is a handcrafted replacement with handmade wedge, the lug on the underside of the barrel has been resoldered. Mechanically good, though one firing pin appears to be a replacement. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
