I'll let Butch tell you about this fine old lady:
I see that a 12 bore Winchester 1887 is on your list of grail guns. Feel free to live vicariously through me.Butch was also kind enough to send another shot, with some friends:
Mine has little finish left, a chipped and repaired toe, the barrel is a little pitted and split at the muzzle, and I adore her. Fun fact: the 1887 came standard with a three blade damascus barrel, with four blade available by special order. Mine is a four blade. Once I have a bit of cash, the old girl is going to a gunsmith to see if the barrel can be cut below the split and safely fired. I want to hunt with this thing so badly, my mouth waters. Collectors value means nothing to me, as I am never parting company with Lord Browning's finest shotgun. Feel free to share pictures, and if you or any readers know of a place I could get a barrel, I would be grateful for the info. By the way, Gamebore still loads 2 1/2" shells with black powder.
A, T, *and* F!
Heh. All that's needed are a few firecrackers and we'd have the ATFE covered...
That is all.
