W. Richards English Made 8 Gauge Double Barrel Shotgun - ANTIQUE  Guns > Shotguns > R Misc Shotguns
Description: This is a W. Richards, English made (see proofs), 8 gauge, Damascus steel, double barreled (36") shotgun. It is definitely not a Westley Richards gun, but also was not one of the less expensive Belgium knock offs which were quite common in America around the turn of the 20th century. It is possibly made by the W. Richards Company, of Liverpool and London, active in England since around 1780, and is still in existence. The workmanship, original checkering, and engraving are of quite good quality. Further, the grip cap and original horn butt plate (now replaced by a later English style recoil pad), distinguish it from the inexpensive Westley Richard copies. The butt stock has been mended as has the fore stock, and one hammer spur is missing. What sets it apart from a number of old English doubles is that it is in the extremely rare 8 gauge configuration. Both side plates are marked “W. RICHARDS” and the barrel rib is marked “W. RICHARDS, LONDON, FINE TWIST”. It is an ANTIQUE so no FFL is necessary.
