An elderly gentleman (born 1922) has had me helping him finally get rid of some guns. He's a Winchester lover and had 4 pre 50's 1894's and now he dropped off this 1887. It's a nice shotgun, 12ga, but it has a ribbed barrel. The barrel is Damascus, but I've never seen one with a rib. Could this be factory or an add on by some gunsmith? Any ideas? Thanks.

It's an add on I'm sure. I just realized they removed the mag tube piece that braces it against the barrel. Probably when they added the rib. Sorry.

Uh, what a shame. Bubba gunsmithing at its best.

So what do the 94's look like?

Shoot low boys. They're riding Shetland Ponies.
