You know what that might be?

It might be a Francis Bannerman special.

Bannerman was a dealer in military surplus at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. Fascinating man.

One of the things that they did is to take Springfield civil war era rifled muskets, sporterize them and either bore out or replace the rifled barrel with a smoothbore barrel.

They were sold very cheaply as utility sporting shotguns.
