Smith English double barrel percussion shotgun - $350.00

Please click the image for a larger version
Smith English double barrel percussion shotgun. 31" barrels, about 16 gauge. Unusually good condition for a working class gun, possibly because the barrel rib came loose near the breech, limiting the use of the gun. Metal parts are lightly engraved, barrels are nicely damascus striped with some scattered pitting. Stock is very attractively grained, has some minor chips in the forearm edge, date 1881 in left side of butt, and scattered minor marks overall. Missing both nipples. Mechanically good, except releases from half cock on left side. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
