Black Cerakoted Winchester Model 1887 12 Gauge Lever Action Riotgun

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.
