December 19, 2014 Update: 8-bore Jeffery ball and shot gun

Here is the latest addition to the gun safe: a Jeffery 8-bore ball and shot gun dating from 1896. 32-inch barrels, weight of 15 pounds, rib extension third fastener, and invisible rifling to shoot both a single projectile or a payload of shot to a good patter. See more pics on the double rifles page. Shown below with a Jeffery 12-bore fowler (also with 32-inch barrels) to compare size. Note the different style of fences.
