Jeffery 8-bore ball and shot gun

For your enjoyment is a new addition to my gun safe. This boxlock 8-bore has 32-inch barrels, weighs 15 pounds, non auto safety, rib extension, 14 1/2" pull, lever for end release, bead front sight and two folding leaf rear sights marked for 50 and 100 yards. Bores have invisible rifling and can only be seen in the shadows when light is shown down the bore. A four digit serial number that shows this run was made in early 1896 and has the proper black powder proofs. She came with two bullet moulds and 18 brass cases made for this gun. Playing with her will be great fun this winter and spring!
