Description: scarce Springfield M1881 "Forager" 20 gauge shotgun. Serial number is unreadable. Only 1376 produced. Correct configuration of 1873 dated lock with coarse knurled hammer, 1881 dated breechblock produced just for this model, carbine trigger guard, and stock made by Springfield from a surplus Civil War musket stock. 26" barrel with brass bead front sight. Metal parts have a mottled light to medium gray coloration and some scattered pitting. Stock is fair with a faint cartouche that appears to be dated 1882. As is typically the case, the wood shows signs of being subjected to hard use, sanded smooth with numerous light to moderate marks and a crack by the front lock screw that is associated with a sliver missing from the left forearm edge. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
