12 Ga. 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 top locking lever to the side and you can break open the gun to reveal the lead-spitting barrels of this close-quarters defense weapon. 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 18 and a shade inches. Lock up is tight and secure without a HINT of MOVEMENT. Steel butt plate on a stock with no cracks or chips. The Locks, hammers and frame have 60% of the original nickel that graced this Marshals shotgun. The stock and forearm are special in that they have nickel pins decorated within the checked pattern. Back action locks with matching rebounding hammers. W.H.Hamilton brand on the left lock and marked Fine Steel Belgium on the top of the barrel.
