12 gauge. All Matching.
Chicopee Falls guns were built between 1947 and 1960, this shotgun is an early-mid production example in Excellent overall condition. This very nice double barrel shotgun was manufactured by the Savage Arms Company, after it acquired Fox. Savage production of the Fox Model B began in 1940. This gun was manufactured prior to 1955, as identified by the stamped serialization of the wood. S/N: (lettered).
This gun is all original. All lettering is clear. Excellent action, with bright, shiny bores. Vault like lock. The 28" barrels are rated at 98% + original factory blue, with no dents. Wear is concentrated in the carry area, as is normal for any double that's been used. Barrel rib is factory fitted with 2 bead sights. The receiver is rated at 85% original blue, and shows the usual wear. The pictures are accurate. Both the forend and stock are factory Hand checkered, not stamped as in the later guns. Forearm is Not split or cracked or chipped. Stock is solid with 2 tiny splinter cracks at the lower end of the receiver, not big enough to see in photo's. The original butt plate is not chipped or cracked and is in good shape. As the pictures show, this is a very nice gun. Not sanded, original. Functions well and is tight. This is a very nice old Savage Arms Company, Model B, that would be a nice addition to any collection. This is from my personal collection, part of which I will be listing on GunBroker.
