What kind of barrels is that
Expert:  Jon replied 4 months ago.

If your barrel is made from Damascus steel it will have a bit of a swirled pattern in the steel. You may have to look closely. This picture is an example

Give me just a little bit to research your shotgun
Expert:  Jon replied 4 months ago.

Your Westley Richards shogun was made between 1875 and 1898.The 1793 number is ***** a serial number on the gun. These were good quality shotguns. Yours appears to be in pretty nice condition. The value of your shotgun is in the $400 and $500 retail. I hope this information helps. If you have any other questions, please let me know. Please remember to rate this answer using the stars.

Thank you and have a great day,
