Hi everyone. My name is Nathan, Francine insisted i be writing this post so i could better explain this wonderful find of ours. It is a very old, double barrel 12 gauge shotgun. I got it in an online auction and was ecstatic when i won it.
Right now we have it displayed on top of the tv cabinet in our bedroom, along with a beautiful bird box and a small old print.
I love the double hammers, they are called "rabbit ear" hammers cause they stick out above the gun like a bunnies ears stick out.
Another view with it open, you can see some of the checkering on the stock in this one.
I know there are many who would not consider a gun a work of art, but in my opinion the craftsmanship and detail it took to make this really peaked my interest. I appreciate the effort it took to create this and consider it a masterpiece. Here is hoping a few of you liked it as much as i do. Thanks!
