Re: Pigeon Gun ? or Trap Gun ?

1. Not that I know of. 2. No. 3. Only a well advertised, no reserve, auction can tell that. Very likely the cost of a correct restoration by one of our present day masters would far exceed the market value of the fully restored gun. Having just restored a circa 1907 1894 BE with Damascus barrels, I...

Re: Beautifully Restored!?!?

Looking a bit ghetto to me.

I just restored a 1894 BE but stuck a little closer to original finishes LOL

Re: 1894 SXS Questions

Canvasback My 12ga BE has a LOP of 14 1/4, Damascus "I assume cut" 26 in barrels, barrels weigh 3 lb 3 oz, Total weight 6 lb 12 oz. Well, it's beyond my skills to accurately figure out what 4" of your Damascus barrels might have weighed, LOL, but even if they had weighed the same as mine, your gun ...

Re: 1894 SXS Questions

Reasearcher, interesting that the two are so similar in weight. Makes one wonder what the point of the different sized receivers may have been.

Re: 1894 SXS Questions

Interesting thread, seeing as I have two 1894 BE's in 12 gauge. One is from 1897 and the other from 1907. Both have the half grip. Did not know about the connection between the V grooves and frame size. My 1897 gun has the double grooves. My 1907 gun is at the smiths right now so I can't check it. I...

Re: Remington 1894 1900 shotgun screws

A great example of why to read and listen carefully first before making outlandish claims and insulting knowledgeable people. Paul and dieNusse1, you have helped so many people on this board, including me, that I can't help but apologize on behalf of all who come here looking for help for this oaf's...

Re: Choke designations from stamped pellet counts - 1894 EE

Thanks guys. I'm working on getting accurate bore and choke measurements. Will be interesting to see how that lines up with the information/speculation here.

Re: Choke designations from stamped pellet counts - 1894 EE

Yes it is quite a gun. Not pristine by any means. Looks like it was used hard but well maintained for the first half of it's life. But it's pretty unique. Turkey in the engraving, 2 barrels set, POW grip, 16 gauge.

I don't think there is another like it.

Choke designations from stamped pellet counts - 1894 EE 16ga

I am helping an acquaintance who has a Model 1894 EE 16 gauge two barrels set.

The #1 barrels, 30", are stamped 293 & 287
The #2 barrels, 28", are stamped 267 & 168

What would choke designations be that relate to these pellet counts. Gun was produced in 1899.

Thanks.

Re: Broken hammer model 1894

Thanks for the help and advice.

The gun is from 1907 serial number 136009 so it has the floating firing pin.

Does anyone have contact info for Mr Jackson. My google isn't helping.

Re: Help dating an 1894 CE

FG, They are listed at Cyl/Cyl and I suspect that is just because they have been cut, given the type of info in the rest of the ad. But you raise a very good point I hadn't thought of.

Re: Help dating an 1894 CE

I'm still wrestling with what I'm going to hunt with a 26" 12 gauge choked cylinder and cylinder. Should be great on the skeet field. :D LOL, Maybe that's what I need to make it a more regular occurrence. Typically I just get frustrated shooting my 30" Full and full or Full and Mod barrels. I'm a h...

Re: Help dating an 1894 CE

Thank you dieNusse1. BTW, Just wondering what some of the regulars here think.....this is a very nice but not great CE with Damascus barrels cut to 26". With uncut barrels I have a good sense of what the price range should be. Any thoughts on how big the discount should be for the cut barrels? I'm s...
