''Hib-Spe-Bar'' Better-Than-Field Grade Side-by-Side Shotgun, #15087. 12 ga. 28'' barrels have a matted rib, 2-3/4'' chambers, simple extractors, and are choked Full/Full. The boxlock action features double triggers, auto safety, and lockup by rib extension with sliding underlock. Wood is nice oil-finished walnut, with both the splinter forend and straight-grip buttstock well-checkered. Length of pull is 14.5'' to original checkered buttplate. Made for hardware retailers Hibbard, Spencer and Bartlett, probably in the 1920s or '30s. Condition is very good with approx. 30%-40% case color remaining, some frosting to the action, and dulling to barrel blue, with expected handling marks to wood. However, action locks very tight and functions correctly; bores are bright. Est.: $350-$500. (C&R)
