1887 cool looking shotgun


I was done buying old shotguns for my black powder project…then I came across this!

I picked this up yesterday. Less than 65k were made between 1887-1899. Only 6,927 were mfg in 1887 and 13,422 were mfg in 1888. This gun is #8,XXX making it a very early 2nd year of production gun and 134 years old. Needs a good cleaning then plan to shoot it.

You need to make a wall mount for the shotgun and shells. Very cool!

Will it shoot modern shells? Just wondering, it's a cool old gun, wish it could tell you it's history.

I found it (and a couple of my other guns) on TexasGunTrader. There is a Model 1901 Winchester 10g on there for sale. That was the gun that replaced the 1887. It’s been reblued and rebarreled for I think $1600

People do but it’s not recommended. I’m hand loading black powder shells for it

I’m planning on turkey hunting with it this spring then “hopefully” be able to do a hanging dead turkey mount with it.

Kinda like this but different if you know what I mean. Tree or post with turkey, gun, and a couple of brass shells…
