Model 1881 Forager Shotgun

Model 1881 20 Gauge Forager Shotgun

This Springfield Forager is one of about 1200 produced. This one has SN478 and it is cartouched SWP/1882 which is correct according to the armory records. At first glance it looks like 1883, but the cartouche engraving makes it 1882. It also has the circled P firing proof. It also has the script 1881 breech block and the oak rod to fill in the musket cleaning rod hole. The forager has seen quite a bit of service and has had some repairs made to the stock. These repairs can be seen in the photos. the bore in the shotgun is excellent and very shootable. Presently, I removed the extractor spring and pin so the gun can be easily loaded. The two items will be with the forager when purchased. The stock is strong and does not have any cracks. T have one forager round for the gun and it will be part of the sale.

$1425 + S/H
