How about this lovely example of a Remington Hammerless Double Barrel Shotgun?

Looks like a restomod to me to use car parlance.
I do not trust Remington's dating service. If they were Match.com, you could end up with Nancy Pelosi.

What could have happened... did.

Looking a bit ghetto to me.

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

I don't understand the chrome plated top lever and trigger guard. Ouch!

The gun is one of those transition guns with the concave rib but still with the company name roll-stamped on the rib. See The Double Gun & Single Shot Journal, Volume Thirty, Issue 2, pages 42 to 53.
