Rapid firing, pump action shotgun with medium barrel. Tooled up with sharp knife bayonet for close combat.
Impressed with the high rate of fire enabled by this pump¬action shotgun, the United States Army made a tentative order of Specter 1882s in 1884. However, this order came with several conditions. Concerned that the pump action was not properly field tested, they requested that their order was made additionally sturdy and with a bayonet attachment. Marlin Specter took offence at this, and initially refused to fulfill the order. In a letter to his factory foreman, he described the request as "ludicrous,” and stated that the Specter was already the most effective short-range firearm available. Attaching a bayonet was a completely unnecessary addition, akin to "pulling a train with a horse." Once this letter had circulated, he nevertheless chose fulfill the order. It was rumored that his thumb had covered a zero digit on the original purchase order, and in fact the payment offered would have been more than satisfactory. Shortly after delivering all 500 shotguns, a copy of the letter made its way into the hands of the General who had signed the purchase order. This ensured no further business was offered to Specter.
