Please click the image for a larger version
W.Richards, as marked on locks, cartridge double barrel shotgun. 30" barrels, possibly 12 gauge. Metal parts have an even medium patina overall. Fancy hard rubber buttplate has a couple old edge chips that are well worn. Stocks are very good, showing average wear and use, has some shallow "kill notches" in the underside of the butt, and a couple light cracks in the forearm. One hammer nose is broken off, otherwise mechanically good. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
