I have a dbl barrel 12ga, rabbit ears J.P.Clabrough & Bro shotgun. not really interested in value but some history and background. it is highly engraved with a couple of pheasents SS#15961. condition not real good - "shot lose", forarm lock been brased, well used and worn. barrel say "lamenated steel" but looks like a D.twist to me - are they different?
Just trying learn more = found in my Dads collection. is it even collectable?
thanks to any & all who can give me a little history lesson.

ALPO,
thanks for prompt reply. i will chek the "water table" more carefully. interesting term for a gun part.
i did suspect this was not top of grade + used hard but my question still is
are there folks out there that do collect them?
thanks again,
Rockfish :D

JP Clabrough and Bros. was a English maker from the 1870's until the 1900's. You should find English proof marks on the water table. Your's sounds like a lower grade but even the lower grades were selling for about twice the price of the best made American guns.
