I should add that the gun has no rust anywhere I can see. It locks up tight and has no slop whatsoever. I took it down and everything looks ship-shape.

Does the "Nitro Hammerless" wording indicate that this gun was designes to fire smokeless powder? Not that I plan on shooting it, I'm just wondering.

Is it true they made these barrels by wrapping white-hot steel wire around a rod then hammering them into barrels?

How worn is the bluing? Were these made like this or were they considerably darker?

Oh, the barrels are 30" long.

Here's some more pictures:
