Description: serial #16345, 12 ga., 30" solid rib barrels choked full and full with bright excellent bores. The barrels retain 95% blue having some wear marks under the forearm and some light silvering at the muzzles. The frame is nicely engraved with pheasants on the right side and ducks on the left, highlighted by foliage and darkened backgrounds surrounded by tight scroll; it is turning soft pewter with traces of bright case color in protected areas. The triggerguard is carved from horn and extends to the grip cap showing some minor scratches. The pistolgrip stock and three-piece forearm rate very good with scratches and dings over the original varnish and the fine checkering on both the stock and forearm exhibit some flattened diamonds and soiling but remains quite functional. There is a beaded cheekpiece for a right hand shooter, a horn grip cap, and an added White Line recoil pad providing a length of 15" and 1 1/2" drop at comb and 2 5/8" drop at heel. The gun features double triggers, ejectors, non automatic safety, cocking indicators, and there are sling swivels installed in the toeline and on the barrel. This is a very high quality gun from the best era of German gun making and is as serviceable now as it was then. (115544-2){C&R}
