COLT 1883 HAMMERLESS FACTORY ENGRAVED 12GA. DOUBLE  Guns > Shotguns > Colt Shotguns
Description: An intriguing gun made at Colt factory this 1883 hammer-less 12ga. double barrel was one of the best quality made shotguns of it's day, bar none. This gun was sold to a railroad baron, and there is an article from the Hartford Courant (oldest surviving newspaper in the U.S. ) referring to the owner, engaged in a railroad merger. Along it's life this 1890 made double with SN 5130 was engraved and later refinished. The 30" barrels are choked: FULL and IC. Action works well, and the bores are very clean. All these doubles were made with Damascus steel. One small ding on left tube about 6" down, and the underside of the left tube has a pit about 1" down from muzzle also. This beautiful gun has bank note engraving profusely covering the frame, and trigger guard. The American walnut wood is high figural grain and very well kept with a Colt black hard rubber butt-plate and a LOP of: about 14 1/2". An honest gun not easily replaced.Gun came from a Hartford area estate. Shipping may be higher than stated as shippers raise their prices twice year without notice! When buying a gun always have it examined by a competent gunsmith before shooting. To buy a gun from me you must get a direct email for me, with details, and shipping cost. We don’t have a web site .I prefer money orders or a check. Item ships when funds come in. If you can only pay with a card let me know. I’m sorry I don’t list my phone number, did that for 30 days, never again.. I can’t talk on the phone all day…who will ship the guns? I’m just one person, and it’s very busy here! I do a brisk volume! I hope you like my wide selection of unusual guns, knives and gun parts. Shipping price determined by zip code. I try to keep the prices affordable, which means I make less money than most dealers. You won’t get altitude sickness with my prices! I consistently have the best selection of older guns If you attempt to buy, you must still contact us for details . A phone call won’t always secure a sale! Sometimes a local person can stop buy and purchase before the gun is removed. Not home many times. I can get six buys in an hour for the same gun this happens when guns are sold very reasonable! Best to send another email . Sometimes not home to get calls. Some guns are required shipment to a gun dealer near you for a transfer to you when it arrives. With the widest selection of older guns at great prices, We don’t have a store, and sell on the internet only. Thank You.
