Dang I sure miss old Dave McCraken when it comes to old shotgun questions :(

Maybe one of you know the answer...

What distinguishes a "Mohawk" 1148 shotgun from just a plain 1148?

The Mohawk was a model 48 made between 1949 and 1960 and was also called the Sportsman '48. The Sportsman '48 is a variation introduced to comply with various US hunting laws. It came with a crimped magazine tube that allowed it to be loaded with only two shells in the magazine. One additional round placed in the chamber brought its total capacity to three shells. It came in 12, 16, and 20 gauge variations.

There is also a Model 48A Riot Model that I have never seen but would love to get my hands on one.

I know the history of the 1148. I just didn't know the variation called the Mohawk. The serial number on this one says 1970! I thought they were discontinued in 1968. The world is always full of surprises.
