This diminutive little English 28 gauge fowler would be perfect for a small woman or teen. The 29.5" barrel is half octagon/half round. It is Damascus. The bore has some grain, but nothing that would render it unsafe. Original nipple was mushroomed, so I removed it and replaced with a correct nipple I had in parts box. Stock is in overall very good condition, with small stress crack at lock screw, probably from over tightening. LOP is 12.5". $275 + Shipping.
