This is an
old English Double Barrel Shotgun made by R.H. Bate, Sr. in Birmingham, England. This is a 12 Gauge Damascus twist barrels. The barrel rib has the R.H. Bate name. Some scroll engraving on most of the metal furniture. Both hammers have scroll on the side. The wood
has some frontier repairing behind the right lock but is overall solid with lots of original varnish.
checkering on the wrist and forearm are excellent and sharp. The wood fits tight to
all metalwork. Damascus barrels
are in very good condition
with light gray
patina. The ramrod thimbles are all tight. The locks work as they
should. I believe this one is a shooter, but you will need to replace the nipples and add a ram rod.
