Please click the image for a larger version
Unmarked double barrel shotgun with unusual grain painted stock. 32" barrel of about .78" or 10 gauge bore. Metal parts have a brown patina overall with light engraving and light scattered pitting. Buttstock shows original paint meant to simulate high grade fine grained wood, this paint was probably once over the whole stock, but has worn away on the wrist and forearm. Wood overall shows average wear and use with numerous minor handling marks and a couple minor grain age cracks by the lock mortises. Mechanically good except hammers don't line up when cocked, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
