Spencer 1882 pump shotgun

Is that the first pump action shotgun?

No, I don't have one; just curious.

Makes me wonder how it went with Browning and Winchester:

Winchester "We need you to make us a shotgun. But, get this: a shotgun... with a lever action! How amazing is that? When can you do it?"
Browning holding a Spencer "Lookie! Pump action is the future! I can make it stronger, better, faster!"
Winchester "We do lever action, thank you verymuch!"
Browning "But, reloading shotgun with pump action works! Spencer did it!"
Winchester "Leeeeeever action. In a shotgun"
Browning "That is cray talk!"
Winchester "Lever action now, lever action forever."
Brwning "Come on, this is 1885, not 1855."
Winchester "Read my lips: Nothing but lever action."
Browning rolls eyes "Whatever. I will make you a lever action shotgun. Complicate and fragile, but I will make you one. Hope your competitors will not corner the market with *shotguns that do not suck!*"

^Excellent summation. Gotta wonder what the hell they were thinking.
