12 Gauge

A scarce refurbished Winchester Model 1893 Pump 12 Gauge Shotgun. Appears to be polished in-the-white and ready for rebluing or application of a modern finish, such as Cerakoting.  Has a 29″ barrel with no choke marking, but it gauges Modified. Note: This model can accept only 2-1/2″ or 2-9/16″-length shotgun shells. it will not accept 2-3/4″ shells.  So, unless you intend this as a “wall hanger”, this gun would be best utilized by someone who is already set up to handload 12 gauge shotshells. It should be fired only with blackpowder shells, or mild (low base) smokeless loads. Has one small pinned repair to the grip area that looks quite solid. It also has a dent in the magazine tube (see photo) that is near the end, and does not appear to affect the travel of the magazine spring. Appears to work well, mechanically. Serial number 538X indicates that it was manufactured circa 1894. A scarce gun, affordably priced! (KGCL-1893)

Winchester M1887 12 Gauge Lever Action Riotgun in very good refinished condition. Has a fluid steel barrel that has been shortened to 18.5”, with 2-9/16″ chamber (will not accept 2-3/4″ shells) and a good shootable bore with minor pitting. Bore has no choke (cylinder bore.) Overall nice wood with lacquer finish. The wood has typical handling marks, but is sound, with no cracks, This is a lever-action, magazine-fed, shotgun. Newly-installed brass bead front sight. All metal parts were just recently professionally refinished in high temperature flat black Cerakote. The receiver has WRA logo. There is some pitting visible beneath the Cerakote. Walnut stocks with steel buttplate. Pre-1899 production. Serial number 1979X.  Note that Kent brand 2-1/2″ shotgun shells are now fairly widely available in the U.S., and very reasonably priced. Kent makes a very mild 2-1/2″ load that is perfect for older shotguns with fluid steel barrels. This is a very practical shotgun with one foot in the late 1800s and the other in the early 2000s.

Scarce Colt Model 1883 Hammerless Shotgun, 12 gauge.  Serial # 426X. Manufactured in 1889. 26-7/8″ barrels with solid rib. 2-3/4″ chambers, modified-right/improved cylinder-left chokes, and 14 1/4″ LOP. Overall good condition.  With its Damascus steel barrels this gun is being sold as a non-shooter, unless Savage Four Tenner (.410 gauge) inserts, Chaszel 20 gauge inserts, or other inserts are exclusively used. I’ve test-fitted a pair of Savage Four Tenner inserts, so you can be assured that this gun is a good candidate for use with such inserts. Note that I have a pair of used Savage Four Tenners available — for an additional $180. (CGPC-133)
