serial #FWS42807, 12 Ga., 28" London Steel barrels choked a modified and full with bright excellent bores, the left tube showing some very scant remnants of very light pitting near the muzzle. The barrels retain about 99% excellent quality restored blue and are stamped on their bottom flat "Ideal 2 3/4 In. Chamber". The frame and lockplates are Ideal Grade engraved and retain a nice 97% original color case-hardening which is toning to pewter on the carry point of the belly. The checkered walnut capped pistolgrip buttstock rates very good with some lovely grain figure and the expected light dings and handling marks that come from a hunted arm. The special order factory beavertail forend rates very good plus, showing fewer handling marks. Equipped with automatic safety, dual ivory beads and double trigger, the arm locks up as tightly as the day it left Fulton NY, with the toplever still right of center. A truly "Ideal" "Elsie" for the uplands and duck blind. (38556-9){C&R} (1500/2000) SOLD FOR $1,955.00
