serial #G3112, 16 ga. x 7x65R, 25 1/2" barrels with bright excellent bores, the shotgun barrels choked modified and full. The barrels retain about 97% original blue, the loss due to even fading along with the widely scattered light handling mark here and there. The coin-finished frame remains excellent with engraved games scenes left and right of a bellowing stag and rehbock, surrounded by loose flowing scroll and geometric embellishment. The checkered walnut capped pistolgrip European walnut buttstock with hog back Schweinsrucken comb and splinter style forend rate about excellent showing only the sparsely scattered very light handling marks that come from a hunted arm. The stock features a rounded left side shadowline cheekpiece, capped grip and the 1" ventilated recoil pad gives a 14 3/4" length of pull. The rifle is sighted with a simple bead front sight and lever actuated flip-up rear sight when rifle barrel is selected. The dual claw bases on the rib mount a Nickel Supra Variabel 1.5-6 telescopic sight with heavy three post German reticle and bright excellent optics. The scope itself rates about excellent with perhaps a very light handling mark or two. The arm features double triggers, the front being a single set, cocking indicators, tang-mounted barrel selector, Greener safety and sling swivels; there is a tiny crack in the plastic triggerguard at its rear tang. Proofed in 1966, this is a solid and very attractive Sauer & Sohn drilling. (38413-11) {C&R} (2000/3000) SOLD FOR $2,587.50
