Description

Coach Gun / Saw off shot gun / Street Howitzer / Scatter Gun.  The Coach Gun received its many moniker on the stagecoaches and streets of the Wild West.  Stagecoach companies quickly implemented the use of guards to ride along side the driver carrying a weapon that allowed for some leeway in accuracy as they bounced along the bumpy trails.  Cut-down versions of the Stagecoach Shotgun were also popular among Marshals and Sheriffs for their mobility and lenient accuracy at close quarters.  Thumb the locking lever and you can break open the gun to reveal the lead-spitting barrels of this close-quarters defense weapon. The barrels show almost no pitting, uncommon for these antique shotguns.  Close and lock the barrels and cock both hammers. Finger the double triggers one at a time and the hammers will fall. On the plains of the late 19th century there was nothing else like the sound of a shotgun hammer. The feel and action of this legendary Old West tool will transport you back to the Dakota Territory, when your trusty shotgun was your last and best line of defense. Features Overall Length: 35", barrels 19 inches with 3 inch chambers. Lock up is very very tight and secure. On the top of the left barrel it is marked GENUINE ARMORY STEEL. There is a brown patina on the steel barrels. The hard rubber butt plate shows very little age with no cracks and the stock show very little wear for its age.  Marked on the left lock "H.S.B. & Co. with a ROOSTER image and CHICAGO" This is the mark of the HIBBARD SPENCER & BARTLET Co. Both locks show a brownish patina. This Coach Gun is in good shape. Great for cowboy loads or blanks
