“The Old Bar Dogs Friend”
Bar Tenders are like the captain of a ship, he has the power to set the rules of the saloon and the responsibility to enforce them.
The old bar barkeep liked these cut down shotguns for their quick action in tight quarters, and were most often used as a club rather than a firearm. Both uses would provide equal devastation. Others liked them for their ability to be easily hide under a coat. I must admit this piece did appeal to the scoundrels of the day.
Yes, it is legal to own! It has been deactivated as a cartridge shotgun. It is now a MUZZLE LOADING CONVERSION. Being a 12 ga. muzzle loader means it has no legal length restrictions. Perfect for a re-enactor, for blank loads or just fun shooting. Uses the 209 shotgun primer. This is a BLACKPOWDER ONLY gun. DO NOT USE SMOKELESS POWDER. Or you could hang it in your bar or old time saloon. Looks like the one under the Faro table in the movie Tombstone.
The action lock up is as tight as new, and the locks both work fine. Overall length 20 inches and weighs 5 1/2 lbs. The loading components shown are not included.
