Coach Gun / Saw off shot gun / Street Howitzer / Scatter Gun.  The Coach Gun received its many monikers 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 some light pitting, but much less than most of 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 2 1/2 inch chambers. Lock up is very tight and secure. On the top of the left barrel it is marked TRAP GUN MACHINE MADE LAMINATED STEEL. There is a NICE brown patina on the damascus steel barrels. The hard rubber butt plate shows a browning tone from age without any cracks. The stock has a chip near the heal of the butt plate.  Marked on the left lock "MACHINE MADE".  On the right lock is marked "Pat'd June 10 1883" Both locks show a brownish patina, slight traces of case color. 
This Coach Gun is in good shape. Great for cowboy loads or blanks
