NO RESERVE!! Here's a very scarce Colt firearm! This is a Model 1883 hammerless side-by-side shotgun. Chambered for 12-gauge shells, it 30" damascus barrels with 2-1/2" chambers and is choked full and modified. It has the typical double triggers and extractors. Overall condition is very fine and the gun has excellent eye appeal. The gun has been professionally restored in a most tasteful fashion. The barrels have been re-browned, the nicely figured stocks have been professionally refinished, and the trigger guard reblued. The work was first rate and the gun looks "right". There are still some original case colors visible on protected parts of the engraved receiver. There is no significant pitting. The stock is free of any cracks or visible repairs and there is just one tiny chip along the left edge of the forend. The ancient red rubber buttpad is dry and cracked. LOP meausures 13-7/8". The mechanics are in good working order and bores are excellent without pitting or dents. The Colt Model 1883 Hammerless was produced in limited numbers between 1883-1895. A high quality custom order gun, it was among the most expensive American shotguns of the period. Due to the high cost, sales were rather slow and total production was fewer than 7400 guns. This shotgun was manufactured in 1895, the final year of production.
