Colt 1883 Side by Side Double Barreled Shotgun in 10 gauge with 32" barrels. Serial number 475, it was made c1885, second year of the production and referenced to be one of the finest made American shotguns. With a fine Damascus Pattern on the barrel, the bores are near perfect and the finish is about 98%. The gun appears all original and in excellent condition with moderate factory engraving lines and scrolls. The fine walnut stock is excellent with sharp checkering to pistol grip and splinter forend, some old oil staining near receiver. All serial numbered parts do match and there is a horn insert in fore end and hard rubber (or horn?) Colt butt plate. The receiver was originally case colored but very little remains on exterior but inside has excellent color. Overall this fine piece of Colt history is in excellent working condition and very pleasing in its look. Antique, but probably still shootable (sold as non-firing only), no FFL required.
