Waverly Arms Co. Double Barrel SxS 12-Gauge Shotgun | Mfg Defiance Ohio

You are considering a vintage Waverly Arms Co. Double Barrel Shotgun. Manufactured in Defiance, Ohio, most likely near the early 1900s. Not much is known of Waverly Arms, most of which little information available is hearsay. That said, the Waverly design is strikingly similar to the Lefever Arms Co. shotgun design, patented in 1907. This side-by-side shotgun is chambered in 12-gauge and features 30″ barrels, a case-hardened receiver, a checkered walnut forearm, and a checkered walnut pistol grip stock. Also featured is a plastic buttplate and grip cap, and a brass bead front sight. The stock is cast-off and the length of pull is approximately 14.25″. Overall, this shotgun is in Good condition; the metalwork shows a gray patina throughout with typical surface pitting and wear. The woodwork shows typical bruising, pockmarks, and small divots. The stock shows small hairline fracturing near where it meets the receiver; this causes a very small amount of play between the receiver and the stock. The bores are bright and shiny with no visible corrosion. The left-side barrel shows three extremely small vertical lines; they are not dents or bends, barely dings, or blemishes and they will not affect the function.
