Colt Model 1883, Hammerless Double Barrel Shotgun, 12Ga. w/ 30” Barrels, SN: 8155, c.1889
This beautiful Colt Model 1883 Double Barrel Shot gun was shipped 122 years ago on Dec. 2, 1889, to Simmons Hardware Co. in St. Louis MO. It is 12 Gage with 30 inch Damascus barrels. It is a Grade 1 with “C” engraving. The factory records do not define the meaning of the level C engraving. I would guess it means minimal engraving? The factory letter states it weighs 7 pounds 5 ounces. This above information is taken from the Colt historical letter. The letter will be included with the sale.
This Shotgun has matching serial numbers and remains in its’ original configuration. The condition reflects careful use over the past 122 years. Mechanically it is fully functional. The wood appears to have the original finish with a butt plate that has some chips. The Left bore is bright but with some minor scattered spots. The Right bore is generally bright but has a bit more corrosion.
This is a very nice vintage Colt shotgun that would be a great addition to many collections. Serial Number: 8155, 12 Ga. with 30” barrels. It was made in 1899 and therefore a FFL or C&R will be required.
