This massive 8 gauge shotgun was introduced circa 1890. The top of the barrel at the breech is stamped "AMERICAN". The barrel, hammer and trigger guard are numbered to the gun. It has a double trigger mechanism with the front one unlatching the tip down barrel and the rear one for firing. Smooth forearm and pistol grip stock with a flat iron buttplate.

Fair. The punt gun has a smooth dark patina with overall minor pitting. The wood is poor with a crudely repaired wrist of buttstock and some minor handling marks. Mechanically fine.
