Remington 1889 Circle Hammer 12 Ga Shotgun

This great old shotgun was made sometime around the turn of the last century (SN 208848) and has seen a thing or two since then. At some point in recent history it was professionally restored and is a handsome example of the most produced hammer gun in Remington’s history. It is an I grade according to the markings on the water table and features 30” decarbonized barrels with 2-3/4” chambers, rib extension and fixed chokes that gauge at IM and IM, matted rib with silver bead, extractor, rebounding hammers, blued frame and case colored side plates and walnut stocks with double bordered checkering, splinter forend with tip inlay and hard rubber peaked (heeled) butt plate. It retains about 99% high luster blue with a small area on the guard bow that browned instead of blued and the stocks are sound with pin repaired cracks at the wrist just behind the action and the left heel. There are some old marks beneath the finish on the forend and very light, thinly scattered handling marks atop it here and there on it and the butt. The lower tang screw is absent and the original Remington butt plate has a shallow chip at the toe. Lock-up is tight as a bank vault with zero movement and 100% on-face (tested with the forend removed). A very handsome piece from the time when many folks put on a tie, vest and jacket before taking to the field.
