This is a 1950’s Stevens double-barrel shotgun receiver, flipped upside-down. Can you see the problem? (Hint: follow the arrow)
This is how to accidentally blow a hole in something!
The sear for the right barrel had worn or chipped such that it would barely hold the firing pin, but the shock of snapping the barrels to the face would jar it and fire the gun.
Never pleasant when your shotgun fires without your permission!
