Bate Hammer Shotgun This is the lockwork of an early double barrel breach loading shotgun. Dated about 1865, it carries the name 'Bate, Eastbourne' on the top rib, although it was probably made in London or Birmingham. The locks are termed 'back action' and are manually cocked. It has double triggers and no ejectors. The action is locked with a Jones rotary underlever. The barrels are 'Damascus', made by forge welding strips of iron and steel around a mandrel. This old gun is still going strong on a regular diet of black powder cartridges.
