Sweet little sixteen.
« on: April 26, 2018, 06:08:47 PM »
Picked up a Remington double in 16 gauge.

E=mailed the serial number to Remington and they replied in less than a half an hour and told me that this gun was made in 1905,that makes it 113 years old. 8)

Butt pad isn't original but it looks like it's been there for a long time.Chokes are mod and full.Shot about a dozen rounds with it and it functions perfectly but dang this light little gun recoils pretty darn good.
Also got some old Imperial and Canuck paper shells but I'll just keep them.

Yes sir she's a sweet little sixteen.  :-*

Good one to add to your collection Sonny. I love the old shot guns. As much as Hollywood western's fantasize the Leaver gun, the most used gun by the average western family was the old double. It put more food on the table then any other gun of the west. ( I have a 20g, it's a fun chicken getter.)

Beauty sonny, it's got that nice old gun shine to it, a sweety in deed.
