Comment   The rarest of all the hammerless 8 bores . This is the only 1 st pattern Gibbs and Pitt 8 bore I have ever seen . A very early example of the patent made within 7 years of the patent being granted . This gun is in very good order , very handleable and a real piece of “living ” history . A once in a life time opportunity to acquire
