Default 12 ga rabbit ear double barrel

My daughter bought me a gift this week. A 12 ga Laclede rabbit ear shotgun. She found it at a neighbors yard sale for $20. When I got it, it was pretty rusty and most functions wouldn't work. It was hard to even open the breach. About 20 minutes with some fine steel wool, and wd 40 and now everything works and it is tight as a drum. My best info is that it was mfg before 1910 in Belgium and imported by Crescent Arms. It has laminated barrels which I think means damascus steel and would not be safe to shoot with todays loads, but it will look great over the mantle.

To shoot it, I would check it out and might even have a smith do so...

Then buy some all brass hulls and cut them for the chamber if need be and light load blackpowder for it.

I would love to take it out for the occasional rabbit or squirrel hunt...

Real nice find and the price sure was right!
