Santa went strange on me this year...I got a Ruger 22 standard, a Jstevens single shot 12 gauge and got to hold (but not take home) an 1871 no-name double barrel 12 that's being restored for me...all family heirlooms, restored to shootability by my 73-year old father's good intentions...at 36, I thought christmases like that were over!!

That's awesome!!!!:claphands::claphands:

I will tell you though in the double barrel 12 gauge made in 1871. You do not want to shoot modern loads through it. It's made for black-powder loads only. And I suspect the chamber length on that thing is for 2 1/2" shells and not the minimun of 2 3/4" you'll find today.
