Japanese Murata style smoothbore "forager" shotgun. Numbered 24 on two bolt parts and 30 on top of barrel. 36" barrel of about 28 gauge or .54 caliber bore. Open sights as often seen on Japanese match locks. Metal parts have a medium to dark patina overall with minor uncleaned scattered rust. Stock is very good with nice finish and checkering, has average light wear and handling marks overall, a chip behind the receiver tang, a little chipping and minor age cracks by the buttplate, a small crack by tip of forearm and a couple little chips in the forearm cap. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
