I have never seen a double barrel Davenport, as pictured. A neighbor at the Baltimore show had several high condition big bore Davenport singles on his tables, but they were priced out of my range. However, in the recent past, I have acquired a 36" eight and a 40" ten, both in very high condition, at attractive prices. They are well built guns. I have seen N.R. Davis guns of exceptional quality, but missed out on the purchase of one at Allentown. I thought I would see another some day, but I was wrong. All Davis guns I have seen since are junk. The pictured Stevens .410, represented as an ugly gun, would sell for over $1000 today if in high condition. The Model 24 Winchester, not so much.

A Bing search found pictures of a couple of the W.H. Davenport double.

Early Hammer Double 01.jpg

Early Hammer Double 02.jpg

The only W.H. Davenport Fire Arms Co. catalog I have contains only single barrels, like my Maternal Grandfather's ratty old single in my safe, but included folders for both a hammer and a hammerless double of more conventional design.

I've yet to see one of their hammerless doubles.

I have a few pictures of both the early Davenport Hammer model and the scarce Hammerless gun.

Ugly guns come in all ranges of quality and price. These two deserve a special mention as the short frame and long frame twins of Ugly Town:

Calling an engraved M21 as ugly doesn't compute with me

Engraving cannot make up for an ugly design, regardless how nice it is, how strong it is, or how expensive it is, IMO. Something about lipstick on a pig comes to mind.
