1st time out of the cabinet for 2 years and still marvel at the workmanship of this 12bore Hammer gun made in 1874 for the Maharajah.
Best regards

Absolute Beauty & Priceless.
A true Work of Art.
Damascus/Twist barrels were produced by twisting and welding together alternating strips of iron and steel.
These were originally intended for use with Black Powder cartridges/shells which produced relatively lower pressure as compared to smokeless powder.
