It seems like many 8's have surfaced lately mostly hammer guns. The auction prices all seem to be about equal given condition etc. I have been doing some research on factory loaded 8ga shells. Black powder loaded shells were offered until the ammo companies stopped production a short time after 1918. Very few nitro loadings in 8ga were made. I'm sure all the 8's, including the later hammerless gun, saw plenty of black powder loads and corrosive primers hence the pitting.
They a lot of fun to shoot!!
