My vote goes to the Winchester 1887 Shotgun.
Designed by gun genius, John Browning for Winchester.  Browning didn't want to design it.  He was interested in designing a pump shotgun, but Winchester was heady with the success of their lever action rifles and wanted a shotgun to go with them, so Browning designed the 1887 in both 12 and 10 gauge.  They were very popular with prison guards, but didn't achieve much commercial success.

In the last 10 years, reasonably priced reproductions have been made in China (so called Chinchesters) for sale in America and other countries that still value personal freedoms to own firearms.

If you want to find them in films, the most notable is Arnold in Terminator 2, and Brendon Fraiser in The Mummy Returns".  Interestingly enough, he used the 1897 in the FIRST "Mummy" movie.  It can also be seen in the Tom Selleck movie, Monte Walsh (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0329390/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_19).

I have one of the replicas made in China.  I plan on having it Ceracoated in Bronze, stainless, and iron black.

I hope it is OK to post this picture.  If not, delete it.

always reminds me of Edward scissorhands when you run the lever on one of those shotguns. all sorts of innards go all dangly then Cheesy

careful with leather on the handle, it can make it rust really fast.

I second Her Von Pifka, please do yourself a favor and take great care with that leather on the steel.  It will rust very quickly, especially in the wrong atmospheric environment.  At least oil the leather well...that will help to preserve and protect the leather as well as the steel.

Canada's not much better. Anything older than the 1890 is good. Anything newer is bad.

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Awesome, ain't it? I first heard of this a few years ago. You would almost need someone packing more clips around with you so you didn't run out.

It's not really that bad - your shattered forearm bones absorb most of the shock.

An opportunity for the US members here:  http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2015/11/25/breaking-news-it-is-now-law-the-cmp-can-sell-1911s-to-the-public-a-thanksgiving-day-miracle/  

http://thecmp.org/cmp-pistol-program-rule-changes-for-2015/  



MOD NOTE: As the M1911 falls within the period we consider "Reference Steampunk," and as this post deals with simple statements of fact in announcing a change in firearms regulation, I have decided to let this post stand and to trust in Brass Goggles members' maturity and understanding that this is not the venue to debate the political repercussions of the regulatory changes described above.
