Auction alert: 28g CSMC RBL SxS shotgun, No Reserve…

The state of Connecticut may not be the first place you think of as “gun country.” But since the 19th century, it has been home to some of America’s most famous gunmakers, including Parker Bros, Winchester, and Colt. Thousands of rifles, pistols, and shotguns have been built in Connecticut, probably millions.

In the 1975s, a gunmaker called the Connecticut Shotgun Manufacturing Company (CSMC) opened for business. CSMC started building Fox shotguns and Winchester M21s in the 1990s. Around 2006 or so they launched their RBL-line of side by sides, first in 12g and 20g. The 28gs followed a few years later, and ones like you see here cost around $7500+ new today.

This one is on Gunbroker.com now and the No Reserve listing ends Wednesday, 6/27/2018 @ 11:15 PM.

CSMC RBL all options 28 ga., first-year edition serial number 002801. Awesome, full “Feather crotch” American walnut! This was the debut of the 28 ga. & SHOT Show display gun several years ago. I saw that wood and configuration and have to have it, so they reluctantly agreed to ship it to me after the show. Hard to find, configuration with 30” barrels, concave tapered game rib, double triggers, Self-opening feature, Beavertail fore end, capped “Prince of Wales” pistol grip, Full-length rolled-edge trigger guard, stunning XXX Fancy feather-crotch American walnut with classic, dull oil finish. Nice scroll engraving with dog and bird cameos finished off with authentic bone charcoal case colors. Excellent overall condition with only signs of wear being on the breech face and slight thinning of the gold on the triggers (suede gloves) – the rest is near mint with a couple small dings on the fore end just below the screw (pictured). Complete with case and accessories. These are the best value in mid-range SxS guns on the market and this one is a desirable and very hard to find configuration.
